Happiness Is A Place!

From 5th August 2013 to 12th August 2013 I was in Bhutan. We were there as organizers for Mountain Echoes 2013, a literature festival held in Thimphu.

Bhutan is a gorgeous place – not just because of the mountains or the forests or the view but also because of the people and the food. And did I mention the extremely nice people?

It was a great trip to a place that is the epitome of natural beauty and where even the air felt better. Regarding the Lit fest, I was actually so busy that I did not take a single picture. Hopefully I will do better next year 🙂

While there is a lot to say, I truly do not have words to describe the peace that permeates the very air in Bhutan. So I am taking the easy way out and sharing pictures 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 I cannot take credit for all the photos – a colleague took a few of them. And yes, the place is lovely – the very air feels like distilled serenity.
