Walking the streets of Old Dhaka

I spent yesterday walking the streets of Old Dhaka, Bangladesh with Jules, everyone is happy to have their photo taken in this place, I thought i’d share a quick snap of Jules, doing his best work.

Shakrain Festival, Old Dhaka, Bangladesh

I was fortunate to be in Dhaka for the Shakrain Festival, a Hindu celebration in Old Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The afternoon is celebrated with the flying of kites from the rooftop’s of buildings, after the sun sets, fire crackers, laser lights, and music blasts from the buildings all around.

Then a few brazen men, swig what i believe to be kerosene and spit fire into the air.

An incredible celebration….
