Spent Brothers Productions Gazette 147 A Journey Through BHUTAN 2016
A Journey Through BHUTAN June 2016
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.

We had a break in a tiny restaurant in Bajo town in Wangdue whilst searching for tonic waters to no avail.

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.
