    Seeing the river / canal / creek here made me wonder – is the location of Dhaka based on the river that goes through?

    • Indeed, Sam, there’s the Buriganga River through old town Dhaka, and a ton of inter-connected lakes and smaller rivers. The country’s two largest rivers are on either side of the city east and west — the Padma which is called the Ganges west of the border with India, and the Meghna, which drains the tea plantations of northeastern Bangladesh. And the Brahmaputra, one of the huge rivers draining the Himalayas, enters BD flowing north to south and merges with the Padma northwest of Dhaka. Bottom line: tons and tons of rivers and water in this low-lying coastal nation. There aren’t many climate-change deniers here 🙂
