It is busy at the boat jetty in Khulna, passengers coming and going to town and to one of the outlying islands. Stepping on and off of the boats is an art. You see children to elderly people skip down the stairs and step without holding anything on to the boat, during the journey most stand correcting their balance with that of the boat easily and elegantly. So agile.
The outlying island that you can see in the distance is flooded and under water each year during the wet season. More than 150,000 people in this region are displaced each year!!

these small boats seem overcrowded and so flat. I wouldn't be brave enough to go. And just stepping in and out - must be fun to observe. Very interesting photo from the place that a few only can see.
Warm regrads from Warsaw, almost a year has passed since my visit in Rotterdam. Malgo
