Expatriate Games - 662 Days in Bangladesh
An Account of Time Spent in Dhaka Not A Guide BookeBook - 2005
This is a revised for 2012 'warts and all account' of a two year posting to Dhaka, Bangladesh. An ill-conceived plan to establish a western style Investment Banking office in the Bangladeshi Capital is the premise. The unfortunates who are despatched to implement this plan arrive to find no support and an impossible business environment. A six day work week, heaps of bureaucracy and Dhaka's own brand of 'everyday' frustrations. Despite these daunting circumstances things do get off the ground. This is not a 'sugar coated' account but it does give an insight into what you will find if moving to Dhaka. Contrary to some suggestions the author left Bangladesh having had a very positive experience. He made a great many friends and is still in touch with many of them today (including his cook who insists on telephoning in the middle of the night.)
