It seems that a lot of things are imported from Thailand. I see some juices, toilet papers. So lovely supermarket.

You normally wear Gho to work or at home??

By the way, now I realize the power of "wai", the gesture of paying respect in Thailand. That is, H.M. Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangsuck has impressed Thai people with "wai". This has led me to yBhutan.

Hahah Champagne,
I guess There are Plenty numbers of Item that is Imported from Bangkok and for Bhutanese People Thailand Goods are Mostly A Number one priority be it cloths or other items. There are Hell Lot of Thai products SOld in Bhutan.

We wear Gho while in office and sometime at home but not always.

Well I don't Have the idea of "Wai" Meaning but in Bhutanese when we referred to someone or on Excitement and lot's More, Example : I can called My Fried - "Wai Dorji" Hope you get it

Our King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk is indeed a true Inspiring leader for all the People of Bhutan, no Wonder Thai Ladies did Go Crazy At Our Kings because of His Majesty Simplicity.

Wai is a gesture you see on the street. Two hands is raised at the chest and make like a lotus. Like Indian people do and say Namaste.

Anyway, do you use notebook? Bhutanese like Notebook Computer? They use Microsoft or MAC.

I use MAC.

When H.M. Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangsuck makes "wai" we all smile. Myb His Majesty reads your blog :-))

pictures are beautiful. forgive me if i have to remember some more things i did there - and i remember a lot from this supermarket. this is where i bought the silver jubillee whiskey, and also the yak cheese (which is still frozen in my freezer), a bottle of apricot jam, and cinnamon-saffron tea.
and i remember asking the lady in the cash register for ngundrum coins (for my coin collection) and she gave most of her coins to me, aside from telling me a thing or two about cooking ema datsi with the yak cheese i bought.
