Microsoft Bing is trying to get in the forefront of the search engine market. Each Day it posts one interesting picture. Yesterday this photo by Abir Abdullah was highlighted:

It is the Iftar market in Chawkbazar in old Dhaka.

Here are the details from Bing:

1) Today is the second day of Ramadan, during which, Muslims do not eat from dawn until dusk for a lunar month.

2) Open air food markets are only one of the many things to see when you visit Bangladesh.

3) Though its independence is relatively young, the culture of this nation is ancient.

4) During Ramadan, Bangladeshi flock to this food market as soon as the sun goes down.
