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!
