Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh, in southern Asia. Set beside the Buriganga River, it is the center of the national government, trade and culture. This 17th-century old city was the Mughal capital of Bengal, and many palaces and mosques remain.
During my short visit to Bangladesh, I only stayed in Dhaka. The poverty is evident: Check out some live footage in my video ""Inequalities"", featuring an amputee repeating a mantra while laying face-down in the dirt...
Yet I roamed the streets day and night and never felt threatened (I obviously dressed like sh*t and hid my camera in a cheap plastic bag). In fact a few people (men only, for a change) approached me, asking where I was from etc. in a friendly manner, without asking for anything.
