My Mum has told me about visiting Bangladesh for the first time over the summer of 1977, when she had her 8th birthday. I have been there quite a few times but never in the heat of the summer.
My Mum told me that it was really hot and humid and that many relatives didn't have electricity and so no fans. Lots of houses had corrugated roofs, patched up after the civil war. It was unbearably hot, especially as she had never left the UK before.
It was the monsoon season and so in between the days of sweltering heat, there would be sudden thunderstorms, when the warm rain was so heavy the roads would get flooded immediately.
As soon as the rain started, all the children, rich and poor would run outside to feel the rain and enjoy the coolness as it soaked them through.
So part of today's 30 Days Wild, is to tell that story and connect my generation with those who live back "home".
