old dhaka is old, smelly, tiny streets, full of people, waste, ricksha, shops, more people, more food, and more smell.

i love it, being in there you are soaked up , immediatly, with all your senses. if not and you are somewhere else you are lost, or you dip your feed into the little canals full of pee. happens. so better get your mind frame sorted.

on our way we left sumon at his shooting place. it was a hostel for boys. just for boys, who are interested in art. in the front there houses is a volleyball court, and on it his things for the shoot. steps, covered with news paper, that's the idea: a guy walking over it.

sumon is helping his ex teamleader with a photojob. adnan and me coming along. just to drop him off.
