“I really wasn’t much of a traveler – I couldn’t even find Bangladesh on the map! I had never been to Asia before and had no idea what Bangla culture would be like. I found out that Bangladesh has the seventh largest population in the world despite a land mass less than the UK and that 70% of Bangladeshis are poor, live in rural village communities and depend on the land to live. It’s a fragile existence. I made the mistake of thinking that ‘poor’ must equal ‘unhappy’ and figured I was going there to make life better for Bangladesh.
How wrong I was.”
I was invited to guest post on Life in Russia yesterday and made quite a few new friends in the process. Why not go over and have a look and visit Steve’s blog? He puts up some wonderful stuff about Russia – a lot is just mind-blowing! Happy new year everyone 🙂
