Scenes around Thimphu

Scenes around Thimphu

Walking around Bhutan’s capital Thimphu one encounters monks (I’ve heard there are more monks than military…this is a good dynamic); ladies in the national dress (kira for women gho for men); beautiful architecture (the post office); decorative dragon motifs on buildings (after all this is Druk La, the dragon kingdom); a human traffic light; and posters reminding good citizens to vote (the election was this past Saturday and it was the first transition of parties in their democratic history – so I’m here in Bhutan at a good time).
