Not just any beans, but Heinz beans. And not just beans, but with cheese on top. And not just toast, but with butter (have eventually found some in Rangamati)
What a dinner.
Pushed the boat out and bought Heinz beans and cheese in Dhaka. The sheer extravagance of it all. Living on a VSO allowance, cheese is pretty dear. A block costs about 500 taka, and my allowance is 10, 400 a month. So two blocks of cheese a month (eeeeasy-peasy lemon-squeasy in my normal life) is 10% of my allowance. Ain’t that something. And this isn’t lovely gooey, smelly French cheese, this is bog standard Australian cheddar.
After my year in Bangladesh, I fear for my safety when let loose in a cheese aisle back in the first world.
