The aforementioned ground raspberries and mushrooms. #Bhutanlife

#Bhutanlife today: hike, crawling through the mossy forest picking ground raspberries and looking at mushrooms, tiny blue flowers

The view from here (earlier). Above Pumo La. At Pumola Goempa. #Bhutanlife

My boss brought me this rather suggestive mushroom this morning. Matsutake, Bhutanese speciality. 1/2 #Bhutanlife

Thangka, some of beautiful detail. Skin is smooth; fabric, the thangka canvas adds texture. #Bhutanlife cc

Namgay, 's better half, has painted me a beautiful thangka. The center, Yum Chamma (sp?) #Bhutanlife

The sparkling light of clear awareness. (Work continues at the giant Buddha.) #Bhutanlife

One of my favorite things about Thimphu. Pretty boy. #Bhutanlife

The scene, Thimphu tschechu. #Bhutanlife

It was a hot day at the tshechu (festival.) Men used their kabneys (ceremonial scarves) to cover their heads. #Bhutanlife

A lot of my festival photos are of beautiful (handwoven) backsides. #Bhutanlife

I conclude this evening's photo offerings: my garden plot. Chard, sweet peas, rescued from weeds, amongst maize. #Bhutanlife

The river itself (at Dechencholing.) #Bhutanlife

Remnants of previous offerings 2. River's edge. #Bhutanlife

Remnants of previous offerings 1. River's edge. #Bhutanlife

Small offering at the river's edge. Lit incense and bananas. #Bhutanlife

Big, big change from a year ago when this drainage ditch was filled with trash. #Bhutanlife

Hundreds of species of beautiful butterflies here. #Bhutanlife One:

Banana flowers (for cooking) at the market. Also seen, fresh bamboo shoots. #Bhutanlife
