We were wrong about Bangladesh and our ability to post from there. China was a problem but here in Dhaka there is wireless in most of the houses we have visited and in the hotel we are staying in and that means we can show you these wonderful hand-painted penguins. 

They're copied from a popular ice cream brand and are used to decorate the backs of rickshaws, a sort of pictorial brake light. Each one is different and you do get the feeling that they work on the Chinese Whispers principle slowly morphing as they are copied and in then copied again.

But having said that, we are going to be in places where there probably won't be easy access to the internet so will make this the last post (maybe) until 7 January. You need the break.
