Two big things in Elias’ life right now, no matter whether we are in Dhaka, Rajshahi, or Dinajpur . . he is building with legos and eating these round fruit that we call boro-i, which are similar to apple in taste. Once they turn brown and shrivel up, lots of people make jam and pickle from the boro-i. And one thing we can’t really capture on camera is Elias’ constant questions. My favorite from yesterday was, “Do bumblebees have noses?”
