My compliments to both the narrator and the author.......very enjoyable reading. Poton, what languages does Mr Sharrif speak, and which would be his first language? And for you, sir? Forgive me if you have answered this in prior posts, my memory is not what it once was.....Bill

No apologies necessary , Bill .
Riaz is Bangladeshi . His 1st language is Bengali . However , he also speaks English , Hindi and French .... As well .
My 1st language used to be Hindi ( When I used to live in India ... prior to moving to Bangladesh ) . However , I also speak English , Bengali , Spanish and Italian .
We both served in the Bangladesh military . And you need to know at least 4 languages . You have to be capable of speaking Bengali , English and Hindi . And you have to choose any 1 other language . I already knew 4 languages before getting conscripted in to the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971 . I later learnt how to speak Italian in 1976 ... mostly as a form of recreation , at the time .

I certainly pity our soldiers who choose Chinese language ... as their 4th language ! The Chinese alphabet is the most complex of all alphabets of all cultures , on God's Green Earth .

Amazing...........I am always impressed by those who speak many languages.....most Americans are very ethnocentric.....they believe one language is enough. I have been lucky enough to hunt all continents, and the thing that amazes Americans most...those that accompany me at times.....is that others also have a life.....and they want the same things.....family, friends, security....and their lives are very much like ours. But they don't expect the world to revolve about them, and so learn the ways of others ; like their languages. My father speaks only two languages, but is one of the very rare people that speaks them both without accent. I speak only two. Don't get me wrong.....I am a proud American......but I recognize your skills.......in many areas, it would seem....thanks for posting........Bill

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
