Hangin' at the school

This afternoon we went to play at the school. By 'the school' I mean the American International School/Dhaka, aka AIS/D. This is the school where I studied for 6th and 7th grade. Of course, what was the whole school back then is just the middle school now. They have great facilities- three gyms, a workout room, a large sports field, a kiddie playground, and a 25 meter pool. Eric went for a swim while I played with the kids. The best part is that it's only 2 blocks from our house!

The first excitement was that the grounds keepers were cutting the grass on the field. Odin directed our attention to their work.

Mommy, they're cutting the grass!!

Next, we spent some time on the playground.

Two year olds are busy.

Then, we got a late monsoon downpour. That didn't hold Odin back. He was quite content to dig in the mud puddles. After about 15 minutes in the rain he decided he needed the 'umba-bewa'.

Thanks for your interesting blog. I attended D.A.S.S. (Dacca American Society School) for grades 5 through 7 in 1968 to 1971, and am always delighted to read of others' accounts in Bangladesh. My father was an engineer working for LDL which had a contract with EPWAPDA to design and build a flood control/irrigation project in Chandpur. I think the years I spent in Bangladesh were the happiest of my life, and I look forward to returning some day. Your family is to be commended for the wonderful work you do in what can at times be a difficult environment.
