I visited Dhaka, Bangladesh a few years ago – mostly to eat– but also to check out Louis Kahn’s National Assembly Building. Naturally, I wasn’t allowed in at the time, so I had to stick to plan A, that being food.
In the city of tens of thousands of rickshaws and taxi rides that went for about $1.50 an hour, I still couldn’t help but get into wander mode. Occasionally, I’d stop at a shopping center for some relief from the chaos, and oh did those malls pay off–
While we’re on the topic of New York…I’m kidding, but it still burns a little inside passing by both Domino’s and Papa John’s in Manhattan. But this off-shoot, I’ll let them side.
The only question is, do they also have fried chicken?
Here’s one for the weird signs collection. The mannequin on the left doesn’t exactly scream what I typically think of as Western, so maybe they mean West Bengal?
Terrible jokes aside, what’s even more unusual about this is the presence of a saloon right next door. What country do they think this is?
Have you been to Dhaka? Do you keep watch for knock-offs/bizarre signage in your travels?
