Leaving on a jet plane

Sunday July 4th we left Cincinnati at 12:13 p.m. We flew first to Chicago to catch a flight to Frankfurt. Then to Mumbai and finally Dhaka at 5:30 a.m. The flights from Chicago to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Mumbai were the two longest legs of the journey at about 8 hours each. We had security checkpoints at each stop and sometimes the lines were long, This morning when we got into the Dhaka airport, Dr. Ahmed's brother-in-law helped us get through the immigration process much quicker.

We have checked into the Grand Prince Hotel. Today is a day of rest and relaxation. Tomorrow we go to the Grameen Bank headquarter for our orientation. It is about a half mile here, so we will be walking, as you would not believe the traffic. I hope to be posting pictures soon.
