Read an Excerpt
"While some people question the need for a guide in a country with so few foreign tourists, this simple fact is what makes the need for a new guide so great. This is doubly true for Bangladesh, whose world reputation takes regular beatings in the world's press when it makes the headlines for catastrophe. To all those who doubt, we now ask you to seek the reality behind the veil, to notice the color hidden in the corners, and to search the beauty hidden inside this friendly region of south Asia whose people may be short on space and material wealth, but who possess hearts of infinite kindness." "If Bangladesh were a person, she would be a youthful teenager, full of life and energy but with a decidedly emotional temperament to which wisdom or logic could not be easily applied. You would regard her as full of potential and while she seems eager to learn, a scarcity of sensible role models and life opportunities has limited her capacities, thus you couldn't yet be sure who she would be in her adult future. You would watch her struggle vigorously in all that she did, and despite the fact you might conclude that the cards are stacked against her, you could never fault her spirit or her resilience, not for a second. To witness this resilience amongst Bangladeshi people is the single most striking and memorable feature of a visit to the country."
