Buriganga river boats

Travelers crowd onto ferries at the Sadarghat dock on the Buriganga River in Dhaka, Bangladesh. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The river acts as both a highway and a sewer, with 80 percent of the city's raw sewage draining into it from different parts of the city.
