Hi, Nurunnaby.

Bangladesh is not planned to be part of this particular visit.  I've heard
about and appreciated the warm welcome your community gave our mobile team,
though. :)

We would be delighted to visit Bangladesh, given a suitable context.  We
don't just travel for fun... :)

Cheers,

   Asaf
