    To Thimphu

    November 20, 2017 in Bhutan ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    From today, we get our nice floral bus with the heater inside which does not let us realise how cold it is getting outside untill we open the windows..

    Mr. Rabten our bus driver takes us trough the mountains and rivers carrying us from Phuentsholing to the capital city - Thimphu

    On our way we were awe struck with "wow moments" enjoying the beautiful views of cloud kissing mountains, city embracing valleys, peacefully flowing rivers ( which they call "chuu" , clear blue skies, gushing waterfalls and lush greens everywhere making the air so pure to breathe ~ Imagine a country being carbon negative !! We had our 14 days of purity, serenity, peace, fun and happiness :)

    We halted for lunch and tried some hands on Bhutanese Thukpa ( some soupy noodles with minty herbs which we found too bland and wierd but Jatin seemed to like it )

    Finally reached our hotel on the outskirts of Thimphu city - Wangchuk Taba where Sonam and Jimmy greeted us.
    The temperature had fallen to 15 ° in the evening and we were provided with bon fire in their open lounge and also shawls ! We gathered to get some warmth and our K5 sessions began :)

    Again we had a good Indian Dinner - Red Rice, Chapatis, Potatoe and Mix vegetables and dessert by about 8 pm.
    Adding To our health besides breathing pure air, we also had early meals as Bhutan winds up early.
