Many Bangladeshi people are very curious. Even in the same Bengal region, people in West Bengal, which is part of India, seem to be less so. I wonder what the difference is. Even though they are also Bengalis. Perhaps this is the result of decades of separation between the two countries. When I walked around with a large SLR camera in Bangladesh, I was immediately surrounded by locals who asked me questions in English with a Bengali accent. Often, when it is children who have gathered, I am thrown into a whirlwind of excitement.

When I took this photo in Dhaka, I was surrounded by many faces. They were all saying something to me, but I had no idea what they were talking about. In the midst of all this, I saw someone's thumb pointing directly in front of me.
