My father was in Bangladesh...About 2000 or so. So this is somewhat dated information.
He`s a sailor. Ship Mechanic and one of the ships he was on had sailed its last and was going to be dismantled on that shipwrecker beach they have there. So he spent two-three months there.
And Bangladesh was the poorest, filthiest, most miserable country he have ever been in. And this is from a guy that have sailed all over the world since the mid sixties.
The international airport was stacked with heaps of rotting garbage bags. People were so desperate that they would kick off the flip flop when you lifted your foot and steal it in the hopes that you would toss the other in a bin and they could steal that too.
Excrement, beggars and dirty cops all over the place.
