Bangladesh Scoping Visit

By Hue Nguyen: AN GIANG UNIVERSITY

My first trip to Bangladesh is memorable because I have experienced so many new things. On my first day arriving at the capital, I was impressed that the city is a combination of modern buildings and traditional shops and stores along the streets. I felt like I was watching a documentary with people wearing traditional clothes and drinking tea on the streets during tea break (I guess it is around 2-3 pm). It is so different from my country Vietnam since we do not have a tea break when almost all people in the country will have a break and talk to each other. I believe that people need more face-to-face communication, so I think it is a quite nice tradition. Later, our group flew to some other small towns which look similar to the ones in the middle of Vietnam. We had a chance to interact with the local people about their livelihood, their difficulties and their expectation for their future. Even when we speak different languages, we have different appearances, we had a nice time talking to each other.
