The Floods are Rising Tour, 2007: Day Two

Now, I am in Dhaka and it is hot and sticky, but no flood waters. It is not nearly as dangerous as I was led to believe. I slept under a mosquito net. Our team leader is very, very ill though. He is going to the doctor today, but when we left the airport last night, he threw up for a while. Needless to say, I have washed my hands about thirty times. People are very kind, but very poor. Luckily, I had been expecting the worst of the worst, so I haven't really been surprised by anything I've seen. We found water though and this cafe is nice enough. I am not wearing any shoes because we had to take them off to get in. Just this until now.

Publication II is forthcoming in the proceedings to these conferences I found out. I also just got a resubmit on my dissertation for the Journal of CMC. Gotta a lot of work to do there, but it looks promising.

More tomorrow, I hope.
