Ariving in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Earlier today my co-worker and I arrived into Dhaka, Bangladesh after a couple days of flying from Anchorage to Seattle (3 hrs) Seattle to Tokyo (10 hrs) Tko to Bangkok (7 hrs), a 12 hr layover in Bankok, 2.5 hrs to Dhaka.  We are here to assist the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Humanitarian Assistance Progrm.  A new approach for the US Govt to win friends by helping them instead of Bombing folks into submission.  We are here to scope locations for US Govt sponsored schools/cyclone shelters.  We are here for a few days then off to rural parts of the country.  Its a three  wk mission.  Bangladesh is my first muslim country-I’m reminded just before sunset as prayers are broadcast on speakers.  Man I miss beer already!
