My parents came to the United States in the '90s and brought along with them, this showpiece. It is a model of a village house similar to one of the houses my parents used to live in. It is weaved out of straw and is very intricately designed. It's stayed with us throughout the years and still reminds our family of our origins. It has been almost seven years since I last visited Bangladesh and most of the memories I have of my last visit are fogged up, yet viewing this piece brings back memories of all the fun we had with the rest of our family.
