“Uhh…Bhutan…where’s that?” This was a common reaction of people when we said we were going trekking in Bhutan. Many people have not heard of it and have no idea of its location in the Himalayas (north of India, south of Tibet). However, a week before we left for our trip, NBC’s Today Show aired Matt Lauer live from Bhutan. Then the reaction of people was: “Oh…we saw Matt Lauer’s piece on Bhutan! It looks like a beautiful country!”
In spite of the Today Show’s “promo” extolling its unique beauty, we were still awed and inspired by the country, it’s mountains and valleys, and most of all, it’s people.
