No wonder my meals are all so delicious!
The variety of climate zones here produce rice, sugar cane, strawberries, broccoli, and potatoes. At the local market, the colorful vegetables and fruit are fresh and crisp.
In the afternoon we chance upon the entrance to a secondary school. Headed for the school bus, the shy yet feminine young women giggle, and (seem to) avoid my camera. The handsome boys follow my direction and line up in a proper attentive pose.
At a busy intersection in town, the charming policewoman smiles for me as she directs the traffic. There are no traffic lights in Bhutan! In this country of hills and valleys, mountain rivers, and big city rush hour congestion, I never once heard the beep of a horn.
