the prolific phallus of Bhutan, seen adorning buildings and hanging in rafters all across the country. This one happened to be on the way to the beloved Chimi Lhakang Goempa (temple), home of the divine madman. Visitors are blessed over the head by a monk, who taps you on the head with the sacred phallus. This is an especially sought after place to visit for women hoping to conceive…get back to me in 9mo. but hoping that I was clear in my intentions NOT to have a baby yet! : )
