Madness at Paro, Bhutan airport

Having never been to Bhutan as a tourist or during tourist season, I am shocked as I sit here availing myself of the free wi-fi by the volume of ‘chillips’ here. And the number of flights! Typically there’s only one a day, but today there are four, and thankfully despite the fog they appear to be moving.

I suppose it’s a good sign that even if the economy stinks, there are people willing to spend so much money to come here. But there’s always something unsettling about tourists, in any country. I know, I know, the economy here is built on this industry.

I just feel lucky I’ve been able to travel here thanks to my work and now my friends.

I am also debating whether to turn the $15 in cash I just exchanged into a bottle of K5 Whiskey. Of course I have to, no?

    The mini-bottle could have been one of the “Three Good Things.” Of course, 3 mini-bottles would have completed it.

    Or you could take the money and buy some of the lovely, absolutely fake Tibetan souvenirs which are for sale right there or right outside the door. prayer wheel, anyone?
