Visiting the Hills: Views of Baromari

These photos were taken at Baromari Mission near the Indian border north of Mymensingh in Bangladesh.


This photo is of the reconstruction of a mud house in a village beside Baromari Mission.


This is St. Paul's Parish Church in Baromari Mission, built in 1942.


Baromari Mission has very comfortable accommodations and the sisters' hospitality is to be admired.


Cooking a meal at Baromari Mission (bhat ebong dim). Meals are very tasty and surprisingly varied.


Baromari is a beautiful Catholic Mission situated on the hills mere kilometers from the Indian border. The beauty of the surrounding area makes this Mission something of a retreat within Bangladesh.

Hi, I don't really know you, but I found your blog trying to find information about Taizé brothers in Bangladesh. Are you staying with them now? Last summer I was in India, and now I'm interested in going to Bangladesh because where I live, Madrid (Spain) I know many people from Bangladesh, who came here trying to find a better life, and I try to teach them Spanish, so they can find a job and can communicate with the rest of people here. And I was so interested in visiting Bangladesh in order to know more about their country, their costums and all this, and of course as far as I could to help in anything it is needed.
If you read my message, please answer me and explain me more things about what are you doing there and about anything you want.
Thank you, and good luck,
Pilar
