I’m down to two weekends left in Dhaka. There’s a party next weekend that sounds like a lot of fun, so the roomies and I are going to try to get into that (it’s a glow party…glow sticks! Fun!). I want to go have henna done on my hands too if we’ve got the time.
Yesterday Melissa, Ritah and I went to a nice Indian Restaurant. That was my first real Indian cuisine experience. It was good and thankfully I got a dish that wasn’t too spicy. I just had steamed rice with cottage cheese dumplings in a tomato gravy/sauce. We met up with friends afterward and hung out until the wee hours of the morning. We all had a good time, I even got a chance to talk to someone about California…one of the guys from Sri Lanka…he went to Chico State!
I’ve mastered the Asian peace sign pose for photos. I do it ALL the time…it’s become automatic and kind of ridiculous, I have no idea why/when it became the only thing I do when the camera is pointed at me.
I haven’t decided yet if I’m more excited or sad to go home. I am excited to see my friends and family again, and to experience cold weather and the holiday season…but I am sad to leave the friends I’ve made here. My life here is completely different than it is in California. At home I would do so much by myself and wouldn’t go out or hang out with people that often…here I am always with other people and there is always something going on. It will be an adjustment getting back into the swing of things and stepping back into the life I left in America.
