Taj Tashi hotel  Derek & Sheila with martinis
We always enjoy staying at the fine hotels in the Taj Hotels group in India. The group opened the
Taj Tashi in Thimphu (left) in 2008. We enjoyed gin martini cocktails in the hotel bar one evening.

Crane blocks road  Karma & Sheila
Not only were the roads difficult because of the rainy season as usual, but an extremely ambitious road widening
scheme is being implemented. One of the many delays we encountered was caused by this broken down crane.
