The Chars of Bangladesh

While in Bogra, my hosts at TMSS took me to the one tourist request I had while in the area…to visit the Chars: river islands or shoals that can only be reached by boat and on which 50,000+ Bangladeshis live. Due to sedimentation, thousands of people are losing their land each year. We only docked for a couple minutes, but regardless was a quick glimpse of the daily commute.
