Contributions from Heather Kindschy

  1. Bangladesh Metalworking in 150 degrees

    An extremely skilled artisan who worked in a  non-air-conditioned room with a fire in it.    

  2. Bangladesh Intervida Children's Home

    My best friend in Peace Corps, Xaviera worked at Intervida Children's Home.  She invited me to a birthday party for some of the orphans who called it home. 

  3. Bangladesh CLosing Ceremony for English Class

    Closing Ceremony for Department of Youth Development English Class.  Certificate ceremony for my co-ed class. 

  4. Bangladesh Rickshaw wallah in a flood

    2004 was a terrible rainy season.  Don Chamber Road the main road by my house was totally flooded.  Cars could not really pass, but the rickshaws sure did.   

  5. Bangladesh Bangladeshi Wedding.

    My host sister got all dolled up for her wedding.  Then completely freaked me out when she cried the whole time and screamed not to be taken from her family.  Only later did I learn that was all part of the ceremony.  When I saw her a week later, she and the new husband were so happy.
