Why do I need a travel blog, you ask? Because you're a world traveler. You've got photos to post, stories to tell, and, well, travel to blog about. Post a couple quick comments into your travel blog and your parents will think you're keeping in touch, when really you're just trying to make your friends jealous! So blog on, fellow traveler! The world is waiting to hear from you.

Lokk it's Sunday-He's back again

3:34 PM 8/2/2015 It's sunday..Time goes by way too fast.i think back to last summer and it seems like it was only a mere few months ago..People might say that one's memory gets like that as they get older.I've been experiencing this strange speedup of time since at least the late 90's..i think...

Gross National Happiness

On the way to Trongsa, we stopped in at a primary school in a small town along the way. Despite the admonishment to dress appropriately, we invited ourselves in (politely!) for a visit. The buildings were beautifully constructed, the administration wonderfully accommodating, and the...

Past Present Future

We start the day at the National Library, which turned out to be way more interesting than expected. As a repository of its past I expected the usual and very stuffy vault of books, but we found instead a building with no books at all except in the shop: only scrolls. The one exception was...

Two heads not better than one

Above and to the east of our site lies the Tharpaling Monastery that gives our company in part it’s name. We spend the day there, the event a bit of a pilgrimage for the rest of the group. The hour drive from Jakar has become familiar to me now, winding through the Blue Pine forests of...

Goodness

Got up at 5 this morning, no jet lag, on fire about this project. I grabbed my first latte in 2 weeks (don't tell me I don't suffer for my craft), and then a few tentative sketches in my notebook from the trip erupted into pages of ideas. The project begins to gather some momentum. Sometimes...

Someone else

Forgot about the time change last night: it was 7pm before I got outside and I wouldn't have gotten to the awesome coffee downtown in time to enjoy it. Instead, I wandered around the neighborhood and ended up getting a beer and dinner. My pepto bismol moment last night argued otherwise, but what...

Almost

Driven to Paro from Thimphu to catch my plane to Bangkok, I couldn't help falling asleep on the hour long trip. Not very good company for the driver. I managed to compress all of my augmented belongings into two bags again, folding the Gho really carefully (the thing is huge), even folding...

Music

Inspiring musical performances at 4:05am, 4:45am and 5:30am from the dog in the alley outside my hotel room window, with a dramatic chorus of his compatriots shortly thereafter, offer yet another perspective on the Thimphu art scene. While the musicality of the event proved erratic at best,...

Drinking it all in

We’re up at 4:30 am at my insistence that we experience the site at dawn. The valley is such that your first experience of the sun in the morning is not facing east but facing west, the light illuminating the western edge of the bowl: the fir trees on the western crest. Obvious...

Buddha Day

We spend the next day in Trongsa Castle. Its Buddha’s birthday, so merits are worth a million times their usual value. Kindness pays today! I’m helping little old ladies up stairs, I’m handing out bits of cash at alters here and there, and I’m thinking only benevolent thoughts. I’m banking...
