I just came back from 24 hours in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Last time I went there was more than a year ago. It's a lot more colorful and cheerful than I remembered it! Brought home sweets and canceled stamps and cheep DVD's. Tired now.

Are we "gearing up" to capture traffic from BA, LH, and SQ? I think we're already doing it!
