Jon Crispin's Notebook

Stinky 2

So weird.  When I looked at the front page of the dining section of the Times today a familiar word jumped out at me.  From the Dhaka Daily Star to the New York Times.

Cris made it back from Bangladesh safely in spite of some bad weather in the UK which could have slowed her down.  Before she left Dhaka, she told me about this headline in “The Daily Star”.  I asked her to bring it home and here it is.  Something about the word stinky in a daily paper that struck me as funny.  The photo of the monkeys huddled together was to illustrate a recent cold snap in South Asia.

Cris and I have had a long running joke about these candies.  I put these into her Christmas stocking this year and yesterday she placed them on my nightstand before leaving for a couple of weeks in Dhaka.  They will probably be there when she gets back.  Neither of us seem to like them that much.  Chocolate on the other hand, wouldn’t last nearly that long.

Books

When stopped in traffic in Dhaka, people selling all sorts of items come up to your car.  I was amazed at the variety of books on offer here.  Look closely.
