Barisal and Really Lengthy Weddings

Yes, I have been at "site" for almost two weeks now, and although I do not have much to show for it, I have met some crazy people/seen some crazy sights. Let's just start with my arrival and instantly being thrown into what turned out to be..a 7-day Muslim Wedding Extravaganza. From the delivering of the goat/enormous fish to the Bou(bride) and her family in the village to the spreading of the holud(yellow paste) on the groom's head, this one will definitely go down in the history books. Although I was "dragged" around by a family that did indeed resemble a school of fish(they were SO nice though), I met some incredible neighbors(Nadia and Shorab)and ended up passing the time with a 23 yr old Deshi who is currently studying in Australia and yes, has the accent. Aside from his gentle soul and his ability to spit out phrases like "no worries" and "have another go?", this Hasif has been added to my list of memorable characters. On the job-front: Dana has done nothing. Aside from use the internet facilities and take tea with the co-workers, not much is happening. I have learned to be patient with the extremely slow pace in which things occur here in the Desh, and am KNOWING that everything will fall into place at the right time. But fun times are coming: Kuakata for Thanksgiving(possibly), Chittagong and Cox's with the host fam in December, and The Sundarbans(yes, there are Bengal Tigers) with the co-workers sometime next year. Oh, and the host family is great! Arna and Dip are working their way into my heart, while patience with the parents has led to some awesome chats/moments. Overall, Bangladesh is a dream.
