Bhutan Hangover - 2 !






As you can tell... I haven't come down to earth yet! Which is a good thing. My head is still in those amazing clouds that roll in across the spectacular mountain ranges surrounding this magical kingdom.
That's the Everest!!!! I shot the picture rubbing sleep out of my eyes as the captain of Drukair told us to look to our left and spot the world's most awesome peak!
The other images tell their own story. That's me at the Paro airport, minutes after landing. The picture was shot by Imtiaz, NDTV'S very competent cameraman.
That stunning building is the Taj Tashi - if it looks like an ancient structure, it's intentional. The government of Bhutan enforces a strict architectural code and every building has to adhere to the traditional model. And those lovely ladies in Kiras are singing welcome songs in the courtyard of the Taj.
You are warned : Before I leave for London this weekend, I shall post more pics! That's a promise or a threat. Take your pick!

Just like light and darkness exist together, the good and evil forces stay inside human psychology. The dark side is not the one that acts always, but when it unleashes, the thin line between right and wrong diminishes. The concerned person forgets everything, and is completely driven by the wrong pathway. Visit www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780552165525 to know how it changed the life of Kevin Dodd.

Shobhaa,don't make us feel envious of your good fortune? It is your expressive and racy style which lends double charm to the heavenly spectacle that is Bhutan!

Lovely pics. I honestly didn't think Bhutan could have as much character as European cities. You've changed my view!

Tsomo85 said...

Madhuri if thats the case then girl you sure has so many places yet to see in northern India. You should visit more towards northern India............for sure better then Europe. Me and my sisters we call "Geneva" our very own Mussoorie<3 Same to same!!! Love it.
