On the move again

After 2 weeks back home in Scotland I’m on the move again – for work this time.

This is the view from my hotel room

and this is the view from my office

w19 feb (1)

which shows the great contrasts to be found in Dhaka (Bangladesh) with big tower blocks and ‘shanty towns’ right next to each other.

Here is my office for this week as we work on the preparations for the capacity development workshops that I am here to run for the Election Commission.w19 feb (6)

and here is where I actually do a lot of my work – the hotel lobby because that is where I get wifi access (and coffee).

More glimpses of Bangladesh to come over the next few weeks.
