Because the major religion in Bangladesh was Islam, many men wore a beard. In Japan, some older people still think it is badly groomed to wear a beard. I thought it is interesting because one of the differences in the cultures was exposed.

The man I met during I strolled about the streets also wore a splendid beard. Although he talked to me, he got shy when I focused on him. He smiled bashfully during I released the shutter.
