Sesh Bangladesh*

*Bangladesh, the End. This is it. My amazing 3 months experience in Dhaka is coming to an end... It feels like I got off the plane yesterday and that that I've been here for years. It's strange how new habits settle in, how one adapts to a foreign environment and recreates a safe haven. Things... Continue Reading →

Oh, Incredible India !

New Delhi is so organized and clean and modern compared to what I've seen lately. I guess it's all a matter of perspective! I did see cows on the street though 😉 I spent 3 days here after doing some field visits (in the middle of nowhere...) with another Social Business partially financed by danone communities...

A wonderful day in Calcutta

The first thing that came to my mind when I thought of Calcutta was Mother Teresa so I started the day by heading out towards the Mother House.

Bogra
