Day Four-An early breakfast for an early start to the Tigers Nest-Along climb about 3 hrs plus -3 of us made it up to the view point about halfway while 3 others went all the way -I made it to the view point -was just too lazy and tired to go all the way-next time perhaps?
After coming down had lunch-got to eat Yak Meat-Tasted quite good I must say. Finally back in town-did some shopping and back to the hotel for a heart dinner.
Day Five -Back to Bangkok.
Finally these are some of the memories I would also like to share:- Every local meal in this country involves a lot of chilies! The national sport is archery. They shoot at that tiny target for the distance of a football field. They dance around between shots when their team members hit the target and when the other team's members miss.
Local women who can't get pregnant come to the Chimi Lhakhang Monastery for a blessing. There are penises all over the place in the monastery and even painted on the outside of houses in this town. For a Buddhist country it is very progressive. They like to drink and party, they can choose who they marry and even divorce.and even women can have 2 husbands. It was clean without all the crazy traffic or people begging that I am so used to here in Asia. The houses were different, more like swiss chalets. The locals have a unique dress, somewhat formal.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST -WITHOUT CONNECTING ASIA ALL THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE FOR ME AND MY FRIENDS SO TO ALL YOU FOLKS OUT THERE IF YOU REALLY WANT TO TRAVEL WITH A DIFFERENCE-THEN CONNECTING ASIA IS THE ONE YOU NEED TO GET CONNECTED TO.
Traveled to Bhutan in November 2008
