Wow I would love to come to Bhutan one day. I am thinking would you be interested in a business with me on Bhutanese handicrafts and traditional dress/ I am thinking about this and would like to help your local economy and also try to export Bhutanese culture abroad as we need some good examples in our troubled World..Just a thought. At the moment I am saving money to get married but I know I would like to do this in a fair trade, ecological way with Good people. You have lovely stuff and I might have the right contacts that would bring lots of customers. I would like to meet you if I can ever get to Bhutan. My Fiance is interested to come with me once we are married.
You have the best things to export too, good manners and good Governments and kindness, we need it.
