This is coming from somebody who has lived in Nepal for more than 15 years. Believe me, Nepal is not as beautiful as it looks like. The pollution, garbage everywhere, bad traffic, stinking rivers, corrupted government and what not are absolutely daunting with no sign of improvement. These religious places and big mountains are the only reasons why Nepalese are still able to show their faces to the outside world. I don't mean to offend any Nepalese but you got to look at the situation of your country with a serious thought. I hope to see New Nepal soon.

Nice to get back in touch with you, Ugyen. Let us keep this going from now on, shall we?

Actually, I was in Bhutan last for the coronation of the fifth king. I am sorry I couldn't get into contact with you. I did try to get your number but the time was too short for me to able to do everything I had wanted to do. I will be always looking forward to hearing more news on Bhutan from you.
