A trip up the river (2/1/10)

Today, we went to the bazaar in old Dhaka. After a long drag across town for an hour in polluted air, we got to Sadarghat ferry terminal where we took a dubious ride across the river; again, we were the focus of attention at the river. It’s clear that they don’t get too much crazy westerners down there.

Old Dhaka (1/1/10)

Not much to say about yesterday; it was new year, so we had a party and food. All good, but not particularly notable.

In the Dhaka Westin (30/12/09)

I started today with a late breakfast — I went for a combination Bangladeshi-English breakfast with both curry and hash-browns. Tomorrow, I’ll drop the rice, and have the fresh bread that they are make on the spot.

The Ontogenesis Tutorial

I’m on my way down to Manchester for the Ontogenesis meeting while I was sad enough to blog about on Christmas Day. I’m looking forward to this meeting a lot; the idea has been in gestation for five or six months since Bio-Ontologies last year. In summary, we are getting a number of people together to write articles for a book, but instead of going through the tedious and difficult process of getting it published we are going to use a blog.
