      ... temple but in this case, it was at the top of two flights of stairs instead of ground level. The monks were in there praying and were being served lunch. They offered for me to have lunch with them but we had a packed lunch from the hotel so we regretfully declined. As we exited the fortress, we went down to watch the archery game. Since they need 130 metres to play, they actually shoot across the road here and ...

      Now, where we were walking, there was ...

      ... is a staple of the Bhutanese diet, and these paddies have been used for generations. They are carefully engineered so that water fed in the top tier will gradually make its way down to the lower levels (one place where the trickle down theory actually does work).
