Globe Trekker - Bangladesh with Holly Morris [52:29]
In Globe trekker Bangladesh we follow host Holly Morris on an adventure through one of the poorest and most populated countries on the planet. It's a tough but rewarding journey and contrary to expectations Holly discovers a country overflowing with life, culture and incredible hospitality. Her trip starts in Dhaka, the capitol of Bangladesh and the 7th largest city in the world. After a hectic few days dodging rickshaw and tasting the favorite local dish Byrani, she boards the Rocket Paddle Steamer, a relic from the days of the British Raj, and embarks on a 24 hour journey down river to one of the largest mangrove forests in the world, the Sunderban National Park. Risking an encounter with the man eating Bengal Tigers that live in the park Holly joins a group of local villagers on a trek deep into the forest to find honey. The search is a success, despite having to brave a swarm of giant killer bees, and after tasting the golden nectar she departs northward to one of the poorest regions of the country. Journeying mostly by river Holly discovers that Bangladesh consists largely of flood prone low lying flat lands and river deltas. During the wet season large portions of the country are submerged and the northern regions of the country are often the hardest hit. Holly explores some of the ingenious methods the locals have developed to cope with the challenges they face and visits a local "floating" school where she ends up giving the children there a lesson in American ...

Within hours of Cyclone Sidr smashing into southwest Bangladesh, the world's media and aid organisations were on the move and Bangladesh was about to find herself wrenched back out of obscurity and once again presented to the global community as a classic 'basket case' (as Henry Kissinger once described the country) of disaster.

mission KUAKATA .wmv [02:45]
background music: Isara by EluveItie edited with picasa 17 young guys visited KUAKATA after a hectic and long term in BUET... Kuakata (Bengali: কুয়াকাটা) is a panoramic sea beach on the southernmost tip of Bangladesh. Located in the Patuakhali district, Kuakata has a wide sandy beach from where one can see both the sunrise and sunset. It is about 320 Kilometres south of Dhaka, the capital, and about 70 Kilometers from the district headquarters. The Kuakata beach is 30 km long and 6 km wide. The name Kuakata originated from the word 'Kua'-the Bengali word for "Well" which was dug on the sea shore by the early Rakhine settlers in quest of collecting drinking water, who landed on Kuakata coast in the eighteenth century after being expelled from Arakan (Myanmar) by the Mughals. Afterwards, it has become a tradition of digging Well in the neighborhoods of Rakhaine tribes for water. Kuakata offers a full view of the sunrise and sunset from the same white sandy beach in the water of the Bay of Bengal.
