Though construction was not completed until 1954, Dhaka still refers to this behemoth market as "New Market". Last week, my friend Corinna and I decided to venture to check it out. It did not disappoint. I really have yet to see a market in Dhaka which does not enthrall me. Everything here always feels so exotic, and the activity always keeps your attention.

Neither of us was out with a mission to purchase anything in particular. We just enjoyed the morning and the array of sights before us. I definitely hope to visit again soon and stroll along the 10,000 stalls we did not get to in our first outing. Dhaka... one can never call it boring.
