Glad your safe and not near the earthquakes at this point.
Pictures are great, cooking classes, zip line, Tiger Nest —WOW–
Women playing darts– looked like a lawn set of jarts, very large for darts.
Yak Cheese what did that taste like, it looks like rock candy ?

Glad your safe and having a great time
Love and miss you
Dad

Kuzuzangpola!
Crazy thing – Tshering looks EXACTLY the same. Less stress apparently keeps you young!
I don’t know about you (or Amy) but I burst into tears when I got to the Tiger’s Nest. I don’t know why. Its beauty? Its majesty? Its mystical presence? Potentially the uphill hike? Regardless, I’m so glad that you also got to see it and experience a country that I believe is still so beautifully and peacefully pure in heart and in spirit.

Hi Keith and Amy
I just read your blog and viewed your photos of Bhutan. I live in Ontario, Canada, and am thinking of visiting Bhutan in the Fall of 2011 with a couple of friends from Malaysia. Did you book a trip with a particular travel agency? How do we try and get Tshering as our guide? Did you fly from Bangkok or from India?
Would love to hear from you.

My friends in London recently returned from visiting Bhutan. I won’t see them until July to view their photos so Googled Bhutan to see the Tiger’s nest and also a takin. Your blog has wonderful photos of both, thank you. What an amazing trip you had and I hope that my friends had just as wonderful a time, from her email it certainly sounds like they did. Continue adventuring. Enjoy Australia, it is my home country. Many many wonderful places to see.

We are anticipating a trip to Bhutan in a month and would like to know which side of the plane to sit on in order to see Everest if it’s out

Enjoyed your photos immensely. Thanks for sharing.

Dot – On the flight in, it depends on where you are flying in from, India or Bangkok. We flew in from Bangkok, and sitting on the left (when looking towards the front of the plane) gave us the direct view of Mt. Everest.

On the way out, sit on the right side for another chance. Be sure to ask your guide to help you get seats with a view, they should be able to talk with someone at the airport. Have a great time and thanks again for the comment.
