    Hey man..your experience in dhaka was hiiruloas but exiting indeed. I am from Bangladesh and its really a shame on how you were treated by a local when you were a tourist in our country. No wonder foreign tourists often see the cruel and dark part of the city and thugs like your friend Raul are common on the streets. However, dhaka has a different picture at the other side, international brands, Bistros, coffee parlours and restaurants are a common picture, and some of them are more expensive than you can imagine. And what’s weirder (!) the people knows english, sometimes even better than an American. I know because i have some foreign national friends and they get along very well, although we do not explore old dhaka together!. Next time you come to the country, don’t trust a stranger.Cheers.
