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.

exploring a fortress around my work

Right outside of my hotel is the Wangdichholing Palace, an old dilapidated battle camp in Bumthang province. I spent my first day here walking around the palace and seeing the historic remnants around it. No longer a fortress but now just a place for monks to sleep and teach. In the distance you can see the Jakardzong on a cliff overlooking the whole valley.
