The Stunning Tibetan Doors

by admin on April 14, 2014

I saw so many beautiful doors while traveling across Tibet. The people were lovely and many wanted to take our picture. So while we were interested in capturing their culture they constantly look at us like we were movie stars! Below is a young man who wanted to take a picture with him.

Markets in Bhutan and Tibet

by admin on April 10, 2014

I’ve always loved how other countries only sell their produce in open markets. There’s something quaint about the beautiful vegetables and fruit in the open markets than at the grocery store. Potatoes and tomatoes are their only export items so we saw plenty of them at every meal ;-)

Trongsa Festival

by admin on April 3, 2014

The Trongsa Tschechu (religious festival) takes place each year (December or January) inside the Trongsa Dzong which was originally a fortress and now a Monastery.  The festival is a wonderfully dynamic and colorful even marking the arrival of Guru Rimpoche to Bhutan in the 8th Century.  This photo was taken during one of the many masked dance performances.  It was a treat to experience this wonderful festival. The Bhutanese people enjoy the festival dressed in their Sunday Best!
