Photos from Bhutan, September - October 2002

From where, you ask? http://www.waysi.ru

From Bhutan - a small, independent Buddhist kingdom in the Himalaya. I took a trip to Bhutan with Backroads, an active adventure travel company based in Berkeley, California. I highly recommend Backroads if you want to take an active vacation. Let them know I referred you!

Bhutan is a remarkable place. In many ways, it feels like you stepped directly from the 21st century to the 19th. At the same time, it is modernizing at a rapid rate - electrical lines are everywhere, and we found internet access in every major town and hotel.
