We have had a great time the last couple of days here in Bhutan! Once we left the trail we drove into Punaka for a tour of the huge Fortress surrounded by the Male and Female Rivers. After a lovely night at our hotel down by the River we drove up and over a pass and down into Thimphu, the capital city. It’s busy here and we are lucky to be here for the first day of a festival this week. We went to another fortress today where the festivities began and we watched dancers in elaborate costumes and masks give a great performance even though it has rained most of the day. We’ve done some shopping for souvenirs and soon we are getting ready to head to our farewell dinner where we will have another cultural performance at the restaurant while we eat. It’s been an excellent trip with a great group of people sharing many laughs the last few days. Thanks for following along on our adventure and hope to be back next year with another group!
