Welcome to the Hanham Family website.
(07/19/09 (Suzanna) We have been living in South Asia for 3 months. Life continues to be exciting and full of new experiences-some not so good but many wonderful for which we are thankful!
Beachwear here is certainly different!
Last month we moved to this house and really enjoy living in this neighborhood. Upstairs we have our living quarters and downstairs we have an office, guest room and servant quarters.
Nationals are intrigued by Americans and run to congregate around us and stare. This family at a train station was especially interesting because their children have such fair skin and very blond hair.
We are saddened daily by the poverty we see everywhere.
This is different from an American grocery store!
We had a wonderful visit to an elephant farm. Richard bought a huge bunch of bananas so we could feed them (one at a time), but a big elephant surprised him from behind, snatched the bunch, and ate the whole thing in one bite!
Who knew elephants are so artistic?!!
What a ride!
The orchids and flowers were breath-taking!
We wonder if this goat had a ticket for his train ride . . .
Our driver is a great help to us with language and business transactions. Unfortunately, a CNG he was riding in recently was robbed by 3 men armed with long knives. They took all the money and cell phones he and his driver had! Thankfully, he was not injured or killed.
Here he is with the newest member of our family – Penny! Penny is a true Bangladeshi dog. She only responds to words spoken in Bangla.
