Druk Yul, the Land of the Thunder Dragon. That is the Kingdom of Bhutan.  Secluded high in the Himalayas, it is a country based on Gross National Happiness.  There is no poverty here, no crime, and the only country I’ve been to where you can visit the market without someone pushing you to buy something.

No beggars or children looking for hand-outs, either.  The only request I received was from two school girls attending a Bhuddhist festival. They wanted my address so that they could write to me.  We have kept up that correspondence ever since, as those little girls have grown into beautiful, capable young ladies.

Also, see my blog: Listen to the Mockingbird, for information on the Black Neck Crane of the Phobjikha Valley.

Tashi Delek !!

About Łowiczanka

I'm a former dancer who loves all things Polish, especially the music... whether it be folk songs and dances from Poland, or polka music from Chicago. Oh, yes, and I love pierogi !
