"Why are you in Islampur?" People come up to me and ask. After being there for 11 days now (and being stranded in Damam City because of the persistent transportation strikes) I could not help but ask the same thing to myself!
I guess you will ask: "What is it like to be in Islampur?" Well, let's see now. I have only seen a very small part of Damam City actually. In fact, I only traveled the short stretch of the street where the Islampur Adventist Union Mission is located. So, it might be a bit premature to say what it really is like. But if you ask me what words come to mind right now when I think of Bangladesh, I would say: Rikshaw and Chili (spicy hot) food!
Till that time, God bless!
P.S. I have changed all names of persons and places in my article for security reasons.
