Peter has been wanting to see an English league football match for a very long time, and since we arranged to be in London during his Spring break, it finally worked out. Brentford was at home, and their ground is very old and has the distinction of being the only one in the UK with a pub on each corner. We went to the Griffin before the match and it was great. We stood on the terraces and saw Brentford beat Leyton Orient One-nil. We were so happy.
Craven Cottage is the ground where the English Premiership club Fulham play their home matches. The first match was played here in 1896, the facade hasn’t changed much since then. It sits right along the Thames in Fulham and is an amazing structure. Peter and I missed being able to see a match, but a really nice guy named John gave us a tour an let us get right down to the pitch. Before we left I went into the team shop and bought some really cool badges and a great mug.
I wanted to see a bit of Mymensingh so Jahangir drove me around for part of the afternoon. He got a local guy to come with us who knew the area. One stop was a famous Hindu temple right in the middle of town. I was surprised at how no one seemed bothered by my presence. I was encouraged to photograph anything that looked interesting. Bangladeshi people are very friendly.
