Back to Dhaka

Arriving back home in Dhaka brought us down to earth pretty quickly. While there was very little traffic getting back, opening our apartment door revealed the sight of a puddle that ran from our kitchen through our living room into our guest bedroom, master bedroom, and master bathroom. Joy. Apparently a leaking pipe that had been "fixed" hadn't really. Luckily, nothing too important was seriously damaged. Embassy staff came the next morning to clean up all the water (though the floor's still a bit stained). The leak itself wasn't properly fixed until around a week later. The cabinets in our kitchen should be replaced some time this week (about three weeks later).

Anyway, not something fun to come back to (or deal with), but luckily the Embassy staff are pretty responsive. Plus, we're not liable for the damages!
