Brrrrr!






Early this morning I went outside wearing a short-sleeve shirt and the cold caught me by surprise. It was at least five degrees cooler than the past few days, the sun was MIA, and a cold wind was blowing. Looking around I realized most others were better prepared for the cold than I was...

Children found warmth with Mommy...



...and Grandpa.



Three cold men kept each other company.



...but this elderly woman was walking alone.



The fruitseller was well-insulated both internally and externally...



...but this girl huddled behind her schoolbooks.



Riding on a rickshaw is brutal on a cold morning...



...but walking with your head exposed is no fun, either...



...and the cold can turn you catatonic...



...so most people cover up, with chadors...



...and hoods...



...but perhaps this woman found the best protection against the cold :-)



Well, anyways... Finally, this girl's smile warmed my day.

Your pictures brought back nostalgia and many fond memories of winters spent in Bangladesh. Thank you very much.
