Can I have a "fiddlers elbow", followed by an "old crafty hen", then a "black sheep", and as i feel like getting drunk, a "golden hen" and a "golden sheep" and then just repeat from the beginning again

Thought for a second this was a farmyard, not a pub! 

Excitement in Dhaka today as a senior politician was sentenced to death for war crimes. His party immediately called three hartals for tomorrow, Sunday and Monday. So I am confined to the diplomatic district all tomorrow and then have to find something to do on Friday before catching my evening flight home. Could have flown home tonight if I'd known I wouldn't be able to work tomorrow....ah well. Maybe I can do some shopping on Friday to pass the time.

What is a hartal ST?

29/10/2014 at 22:25

A hartal is a general strike, Cinders. There have been three in the last month. They call them at the drop of a hat and I am not allowed to leave the diplomatic district otherwise our insurance is invalid and, also, they can get violent. 500 people died in hartal-related violence last year. 

Despite all this, it is an amazing country to visit.

Morning. Any coffee?

Doesn't sound good ST. 

30/10/2014 at 08:57

Fresh coffee bubbling away in the kitchen, Cinders.

I am quite safe here. The hotel is in a very safe area and I have no intention of straying from here today! But the whole situation gives some explanation of why this country remains so economically poor, when people are expected to down tools on a regular basis. Add to that the high levels of illiteracy and you can see some of the problems.

30/10/2014 at 15:55
