Mission Sunday: Bangladesh

I was born in Bangladesh way too many years ago – and we moved to the US before I turned four.

We recently added a little “sister” to our “family” from Bangladesh, and it’s been fun virtually introducing Esmé to my “homeland.”  (And let’s just keep encasing “words” in “quotes,” shall “we?”)

Anyway, I came across a beautiful photo gallery on facebook appropriately titled "Face of Bangladesh," and I got permission to share some of those photos with you (thanks, Deepak)!

Enjoy a view into this beautiful country...

An old lady fishing:

The epitome of elegance:

A trip to the market:

This one just makes me think of Huck Finn…

I’ve got a stack more favorites, but we’ll stop here for now…

Yes, "our" "homeland" is a land full of sights and sounds to fill your senses. A lot of beauty there.

Also a lot of heartbreak. So glad that you are "adopting" a little sister there!
