After that we were invited to join her to a wedding party of one of her friends. This was in Dhanmondi, the area where I lived from 1978 to 1981. At night I could not recognise much. The party was in a huge Chinese restaurant Xingxing. On each of its four floors there was a beautiful bride siting on a rostrum surrounded by people with cameras. The father of the bridegroom first took us to the wrong floor.
Each floor had long tables were people were seated, guided by the father
On 5 February more RDRS alumni have arrived, the women waned to do shopping. Chris was able to get an old taxi that was dropping someone of some next door. We hired the dented t until 15:00 to take us around Banani, Gulshan and further. We couldn' t find Chris's house. We had a quick look in the Dutch club. We ran into a member who introduced us. At the American club Jim and his son Onni were not so lucky. We were not allowed in for Jim' s french fries and a beer. We drove to the Sheraton hotel, earlier Intercontinental. I could barely recognise it, but the Zakira shop were I did my first shopping in 1978 was still there.
We had a great lunch in the five-star Sonargaon hotel.
