Hello, I'm an Italian Geologist 41 years old, and I've just received a good job offer for one year in Bangla Desh. Basically, I would be based in an office in Dakha, in the quarter of Baridhara, but sometimes with field surveys in Rangpur, Dinajpur, Mymensingh, Tangail, Bogra, and Rajshahi. The job position is extremely attractive and fascinating and also the salary is good (I wuold be payed in Thai Bhat, about 60000 per month, equivalent to 163445.13 Takas, if I correctly converted the currency). I am really excited of this job opportunity, but at the same time I quite worried. Browsing on the web I read many controversial information on Dakha and Bangladesh in general. Someone speaks of an awful hot and wet climate, of terrible infective diseases, millions of mosquitoes (including those transmitting the Dengue virus), very bad and dangerous public transports, not drinkable water, unsafe food, very poor hospitals, old houses and hotels not very clean, high levels of criminality, continuous political and religious disorders and fightings. Some others, instead, report of a beautiful, peaceful country, with just some danger of diseases in rural areas. Now, taking into account that I'm accustomed to European standards of living and that I should work there for at least one year (not just a few weeks as a tourist) can somebody objectively describe the living conditions in Dakha and in the rest of Bangladesh? Do you think it's worth accepting such a job offer? I am particular worried about infective diseases. Can someone tell me precisely which the compulsory and suggested vaccinations are? And in which do these vaccinations consist? Pills or injections? How long does it take, on the whole, such preventive cures? Just a few days or weeks? Thanks in advance for any answer. Regards.
Dear Dhaka-Specialists, I'm planning a 10 days stay in Dhaka in the beginning of october. I read that from 2nd to 6th october there will be the Duja Purga Festival. What does this mean? Do people work then or is it a public holiday and they have all the days off? Or just one day off? How is shopping during these days? Public transports? Thank you very much for your answers. Kind regards. Agnes

Hey VT dudes, I am looking for a nice, clean, cheap private flat to rent with all modern amenities from end of July 2007, for a period of one month.

My wife and I are planning to move to Dhaka in early August for a two year teaching contract at an international school. We just found out that she is pregnant. She will be in her 17th week of pregnancy at the time of move. The school that we will be working at recommends vaccination for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Tetanus and Typhoid after arrival in Dhaka. However, our understanding is that only Hepatitis B and Tetanus vaccines are safe to be administered during pregnancy. 1. Is it safe to move to and live in Dhaka without the vaccination of Hepatitis A and Typhoid? 2. Are there any known vaccinations pertinent to living in Dhaka that can be given during pregnancy? 3. Are there other health issues for her in moving to Dhaka?
My wife and I are moving to Dhaka in early August for a two year teaching contract. We just found out that she is pregnant, and we have been told that most of the vaccinations will not be able to be given during pregnancy. She will be seventeen weeks pregnant by the time we move. Is it safe to move to and live in Dhaka without vaccination? Are there any known vaccinations pertinent to living in Dhaka that can be given during pregnancy?
