Urban Riverfront.1

I don’t get out and about very much these days. In this I would guess I am much like many of you: facing unusual challenges and trying to find things to focus on, or in my case take my mind away from work challenges and still keep me engaged with my many friends and family who read this blog, even if you’re continents, oceans and time zones away from where I find myself now. Anyhoo, I’m still trying to post something each day despite the fact I’m honesty not walking many new paths or going to many new places in any given week, since mid-March. However, I have dug out a new treasure trove of photos taken in the “old” days of January at the pleasant and busy waterfront along the Buriganga river, near one of our clinical sites in Kamrangirchar. It’s a quite different part of the city from the area where my own office and home are, and where my urban mangoes are (still!) growing and the city signs have been so overwhelmingly documented. In any case, I herewith introduce you to the next little series that I’ll be calling “Urban Riverfront,” for as long as these photos last, which looks like eight more posts after this…unless I find more tucked into a folder somewhere. I shall likely alternate with more Signs of the City and glimpses of Urban Gardens any place I can find them :-). I do hope you find them, or the posted evidence that I’m still getting out of bed each day and trying to do something or other with my life in these weird times, worth coming back for. Peace & health.

    • Why thank you, Sam. So glad you enjoy it. It’s one of the spots I enjoy most in the city, in fact.

    Reminds me of Taiwan in the early 1950’s and places in Yunnan around 1990. As long as folks are safe and healthy (a big IF), life is good. Misery is definitely man-made. Thanks for keeping this window to your life in the front lines open!
