• Dhaka - capital of Bangladesh amazing
Bangladesh is world famous for its overpopulation. Despite the modest size, it is home to 152 million people, almost as in Russia, only Bangladesh is 120 times smaller in area. In the capital, Dhaka, lived 10 million, although the area is less than in Moscow is almost 10 times. It is not clear where they live, as high-rise buildings almost none. But there are many slums, which, probably, and feed statistics on overcrowding.
I love useless facts. For example, while Bangladesh is the most populous country in the world, did not win any medals at the Olympics.
Dhaka was a wonderful, beautiful, modern city. I do not understand why tourists bypass the city side?
In Dhaka, you can find amazing scenic views. Beautiful lake, nice neat houses ... a beautiful modern city before us!
In large cities, I like to go to the station. There is always crowded, you can always meet and talk with interesting people. In Dhaka, there is a large modern railway station.
go to the passengers along the routes. All very elegant.
The trains have cars of different classes. This sedentary. It comfortable high back, soft seats, walls are made of natural materials. Look, what a beautiful couple ... maybe they were going to a romantic picnic in the Dhaka suburb.
A is a compartment for two people.
There are still seats superior!
Dhaka - just a wonderful city. Unfortunately, the walk sometimes overshadow the landfills, which are right there on the roads. But not necessarily notice the dirt under your feet!
The main form of transport in the city - rickshaws and auto rickshaws, on a daily basis to work out about 400 thousand rickshaws. Of these, only 85,000 work legally. Rickshaws are banned in many parts of the city, as are the cause of severe traffic congestion.
going some chaos on the roads. Pay attention to the body of the bus. Machines are constantly rub against each other with a terrible screech. Traffic lights in the city, though there are, but they no one is watching. On every street corner stands regulator, which keeps the car for 15-20 minutes. In the afternoon in the center of the city impossible to go.
You can see here all the variety of transport in Dhaka. It rickshaws, auto rickshaws, double-decker buses, motorcycles, cars, who are forced to protect themselves establish that at least for some time to maintain bumpers intact.
The central streets look like.
In order to somehow organize a movement at the crossroads of major headlands pre-separated from the total flow.
The traffic controller.
The traffic drivers to sell some fruit, something like a mango.
With the economy in Dhaka is not very good. About 34% of families live below the poverty line, a large part survives on less than $ 5 a day.
along the railway tracks full of life! Simply magical slums there.
Suddenly, the train rushes at great speed. People somehow cleverly scatter in different directions. Those who have no money for a ticket, go hares on the roof.
I remember a few years ago, watched a movie about Indian trains when they are caked with people. In Bangladesh, this also occurs mainly during the major holidays. Just look at how people are going to the mass prayer:
And between the ways a person takes a bath!
The baby is sleeping calmly in a meter from speeding trains.
On the move people beat the market spontaneous ... And then is heard somewhere in the distance dial tone "T-U-Y-U-T-U!"
People instantly free path and a second sweeping train.
And in a few seconds filled with thousands of moving rickshaws and cars.
I told you that Dhaka is beautiful!
