Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on 5K iMac

Who says you can’t game on an iMac?

Okay, I admit, it’s not a gaming machine. In a similar price range, you can get a much more powerful desktop computer having the ability to play all the latest triple-A titles. But that’s not what I got the iMac for. So I was fine with not having the ability to play all the triple-A titles.

However, it was still great at playing some of the titles that I enjoy. Euro Truck Simulator, as seen here, plays smoothly without any drama. I’m glad that it does. It’s one of the most relaxing video games that I ever played and I can’t get enough of it.

Fun fact: When I shot this photo, as you can see, it was raining in the game world. It had been raining in the real world as well! Adds to the experience, you know!

Crowne Plaza, Belgrade

While attending WordCamp Europe 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia, I had the opportunity to stay at Belgrade’s Crowne Plaza hotel. It was a nice hotel with a fairly well-decorated room. Took this shot while I was looking at it from my bed.

Isn’t it wonderful that we can travel the world with ‘our world’ on that piece of technology?

Amex Lounge at Shahjalal International Airport

One of the perks — not that there are many — of getting a City Bank American Express Credit Card (Gold) is that when you’re leaving the country, you can enjoy a somewhat luxurious lounge at the Shahjalal International Airport.

The lounge is pretty calm and beautiful. It has a good selection of free food that you can eat before you start your journey. There’s free WiFi with adequate speed to do some heavy browsing.

The lounge is accessible after you cross the immigration point, so you will likely not be spending a lot of time in there as you can only cross immigration after you’ve checked in, which is no more than a couple of hours before the departure time.

Why did I say that there aren’t many perks of getting an Amex card? Well, turns out, in Bangladesh, most merchants accept either Visa or MasterCard. American Express is not accepted as widely as Visa and MasterCard. Not that you can live without carrying cash in Bangladesh, but those places that do accept card transaction, they usually don’t support Amex cards, which is a bummer.

Arrival at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka

The arrival area at the only international airport in Bangladesh. Having traveled through so many international airports abroad, where you have to walk painfully long distance inside the airport to get from point A to point B, when coming back to Bangladesh, this airport feels ridiculously small. But, when you come back from a 30+ hour journey, a small airport makes it that much easy on the body.
