The schedule is a bit crazy so this won't be a long post, but I did want to show you what I wear here in Bangladesh. The long tunic and baggy pants are called shalwar kameezes and I had three made on the first day I was here. The tailor and his three assistants were working in a room no bigger than our bathroom at home and churned out both mine and my friend's shalwar kameezes in twenty-four hours. They are made from the softest thinnest cotton and are very comfortable. I soak my scarf in water before I leave for class and spend my time while I'm teaching wiping my face with it to cool down. I"m not sure that is the point of it, but that's how I make it work.
On another note - one of my students described a happy child as jolly-minded. I thought it was such a charming way to describe it don't you think!
