The hustle & bustle of Dhaka city

Don't be fooled by the serenity of the hotel lobby
 This doesn't depict the real Dhaka...coz once u step out of the hotel...it is a totally different world
 a chaotic and densed place
 that u could regret of being there
 bcoz of the foul-smelled air...dusty roads...
 and noise pollution
 it jammed everywhere...but it was "hartal" (strike) during the time when i was there...hence roads were mostly cleared...but still u won't escape the evening jam when the strike was over
 everywhere u'll see "tuk-tuk" as their main public transportation...sort of their local taxi
btw, it is dangerous to ride on such vehicle which has no safety features...and at a crowded Dhaka streets where u can get squeezed or "banged" by bigger vehicles.
due to it's "tricycle-like", this vehicle isn't stable and can't go fast
 trishaw, mini jeep, tuk-tuk....the 3 famous public transportation by the locals, for the locals
 again every junction was a chaos...in such a "harmonious" way...well, at least their locals can live with it....
 and not to mention that their street cables are just as messy as their traffic!
 trishaw...waiting for potential customers...
and one common sight of a street in the middle of the city...
Well...i was told by their local that a 'storm' is reaching towards the southern part from Bay of Bengal...
but anyhow...i left the day before...
 and back home, i saw the news of cyclone Mahasen wrecking the southern coast...oh, gosh!
