Himalaya

Day 118: Sylhet

Michael Palin - HimalayaHe maintains that the houses he's put up in Sylhet are for his extended family and not for profit.

'That is our tradition here.'

In any case, it cost him a lot of money. Land is expensive here, he says, more expensive than London or New York.

'Because the people who run my country, they always want money for this and that.' Bribes, he alleges darkly, are an essential part of any transaction. His hand is on my arm again and his eyes bore into mine.

'I speak true. I always speak true.'

There is a pause, and then a last big, toothy laugh.
