The best of Western Bhutan. Paro

I came to Bhutan for only 5 days, and was in the Thimpu and Paro areas. It's a glorious country, fresh air, and great walking and many unusual sights to see.I will be doing more in the coming weeks, and will tell you about Bhutan.

    Normally I always go to Africa, but I think I’ve got to reconsider my next destination when I see your VTpage.
