At this point of our first day in Bhutan, we were getting very tired from our lack of sleep. But we powered on to Paro Dzong, the most impressive looking building in Paro.
Then off to our first Bhutanese lunch buffet. And it was awesome. And our most favourite meal in Bhutan.
After a brief stroll through town, we hopped into the car and were driven an hour and a bit to Thimphu for the night. The “bit” was thanks to an unusual roadblock.
The bumpy road hugs the valley wall, passing steep terraced rice paddy fields and old farmhouses. It is a beautiful sight.
Or so I sort of remember. We fell asleep, so missed the whole thing!
