This is our backyard. We're lucky to have one. Most expatriates living in Dhaka live in apartments now. And many of the houses don't really have a yard.

The kids and our dog, Brishti, spend quite a bit of time out here. As you can see, we have a swing set, newly acquired in June. We bought it from an expatriate family, who bought it from another expatriate family, who shipped it to Dhaka for their kids 8-10 years ago.

The dirt patches are where water collects during the monsoon and kills the grass. The monsoon is over now so the grass should be coming back this month. The bright, metal and green structure at the far end of the yard is our diesel generator. Odin reveres the generator.

Here are a couple of backyard action shots of the kids playing with their ayahs.
