Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Drukgyel Dzong

Near the hotel in paro is an old fort in ruins. The Dzong was possibly built by Tenzin Drukdra in 1649 at the behest of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal to commemorate victory over an invasion from Tibet. In the early 1950s Drukgyal Dzong was almost completely destroyed by fire. Now it lies badly damaged and last years earthquake in Sikkim felt shocks ripple through the area causing the Dzong to fall apart even more.

After I was done touring the fortress I walked down through a little village and back up by the stream that runs by the hotel's side.

Notice the second photo, one of many sacres sites in Bhutan. A phallus.
