I came accross a news article about people diving on wrecks in some rivers around Bangladesh: Hungry 4 Adventure (http://www.hungry4adventure.com/DisplayArticle.aspx?ArticleID=39). I grew up diving rivers and am always interested in finding more. Has anyone done any diving in any rivers around here? Are there wrecks worth seeing?

I've not dived around here, but man, Bangladesh would really be a different world to see. It's still a real mess from last fall's typhoon, as the people can't afford to fix what got broken. The charities here are still asking for money to send over. I talked to a guy in Japan who got to visit a friend in Dhaka, and it was fascinating to hear his tales.

Can you recall a year in recent history when they have not been hit by a typhoon or bad weather?...fact that such a high population sits just a few feet (often cm) above sea level does not help. Lots of places on my list to see, lots to avoid - sadly this is one of them.

Heh... how true, how true.
