Korail slum in Dhaka has over 200,000 inhabitants. These kids were my escorts for the day, proudly showing me their neighbourhood.

The kids proudly showing off their school room - 25sq meters of corrugated iron and no air con! They later gave me a tour of all their art work, Blu-Tacked to the walls.

My route to Korail was by punt. The river was awash with detritus - it literally felt like I was crossing the river Styx.

These ladies had dressed in their finery for a visit of the factory's oversees owner. They very kindly posed for a few minutes before returning to the opening ceremony.
