Viewing Post for: Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon 2014

Date: Tuesday, September 30
Location: Paro, Bhutan and Takstang Monastery

That picture probably says more then we can in here. That is Karla and Jaam, our new Bhutanese friend and guide. We are at 10,000 feet after a 2 plus hour hike up to the Monastery. Hundreds of years ago, Guru Ringpoche flew on the back of tiger to this cliff to subdue the local demons who had been plaguing the locals.

Great hike with lunch on the cliff-side cafe.

Our short stop at another monastery that we could not get in because the Queen mother was there for a 15 day ceremony.

Now we are packing to begin our hike.... Oh, Dan did arrive today. All is well here.
