Visit to Rural Village

We drove to the countryside and our guide, the local social worker, and leader of the local Communist Party, reserved this boat for us to go out to one of the many rural island villages in Bangladesh.

On the way to the village we passed the fishing boats of villagers who scrape out a living for themselves and their families with this occupation.

In the village, a visit from someone from another country is perhaps unknown before this.   The kids especially were very interested.

In the dirt floor huts of the villagers there was no furniture.   Everything is done on the floor.

Hanging latrines for villagers.  The excrement goes down the side of the slope into the waters.

This is the same water where people bathe and do their laundry, as well as, not far away, fish for food.
