Ups, I fall asleep while looking through the window this greenery. I opened my eyes and woke up thinking I was on a train barrier and we were waiting for the train to pass. However the bus assistant came to me and asked me if I wanted to go to the washroom and I said yes, so I went to the toilet and was thinking that I was dizzy or the bridge was moving, but for my surprise I was on a ferry hahaha. There were people selling fruit and the bus assistant bought me an apple and a banana, he even called my contact in Dhaka to make sure I would reach safely. After more than one hour on the ferry we crossed the Padma river, left the ferry and kept driving towards the capital.
At some point we were stuck on a traffic jam in a rural area and didn't move for 4 hours or more as it's Eid holidays and roads are busy. I decide to leave the bus and buy some crisps so someone on my bus helped with that. When I came back the bus assistant was super worried and concerned about my safety. He told me this was a village area and anything can happen to me because it's not safe, so he asked me to don't leave the bus unless with him if I needed something. The poor thing was super serious about it and requested me to stay on the bus. I really appreciate that he was trying to help and protect me because I'm his responsibility according to him. This is something very touching, same as India... People take care of you so much that it's super easy to travel around. Everyone wants to make sure you reach the destination without problems and also they want you to have an incredible time in their country. They feel honoured that you're visiting them, but between you and me: I feel honoured that they are so hospitable and treat me so well. This is a priceless gift! Thank you so much 🙂
The only think I didn't like it was that we are going in a very luxury bus, it is almost empty and there was a guy near me that was spitting on the floor of the bus all the time. So at the end I had to tell him to stop doing it or go to the back and doing it there where I can't see you. The thing is this man doesn't speak barely English but he got my point because he didn't repeat it haha. Power of persuasion haha 💪

Leaving that aside, this is wonderful.
I already like this place hehe 😀 it is to recover this feeling I had in India before. I feel special and blessed that the universe put so many wonderful people on my way!!!! Full stop 😝
PS. I finally arrived in Dhaka about 5am, my friend booked an Uber for me and the guy didn't want to use the navigation map and got lost to get into Old Dhaka... After one hour we reached my couchsurfing host house 😂😂😂 Stories to tell hehe!
