At 2:00 we visited the rest of the monastery's temples ...

... most famous for being the home of the "Gross National Happiness" measure and being pretty darn expensive, we were very lucky to be spending 5 days in this mountainous paradise.

After a spine tingling flight in (you swoop in through the middle of mountains), you are presented with the best airport exterior you are likely to ever see. Ornately decorated in traditional ...
