At Bengal Island, one of the project (actually two different projects) that I find the most fascinating are the boat buildings that are taking place there.
Here are the few pictures and a video about the traditional Bangladeshi dinghy (if you’re keeping track of the project, those pictures and video date from August 4th and 5th):

And here is a short interview of Syed Wasama Doja who tells us about traditional Bangladeshi dhingies as well as a few words about the work that the Friendship NGO does to preserve them:

What a great video. I love these videos you are putting up. I hope everyone takes the 3 minutes needed to watch it. I learned a lot about what they are doing. It opens up a brand new side to your posts. Can’t wait to see the final product, but it looks pretty complete already!
Thanks. Yesterday, they painted the hull and that makes it look very different.
It should be finished next week-end, and the good news is: they are going to put it in the water and it’s going to stay in Kagawa! More on that later (next week I guess)
Can’t wait to see more of it. I’ll be patiently waiting. ^^
