I arrived in Paro for a night before being whisked away early morning to fly to Bumthang with a private guest. Before I left a monk had arrived in to perform a ceremony for me that would wish me safe travels. He stood still saying a bunch of prayers under his breath, occasionally ringing a bell. Then he poured some tea on my hands and I was supposed to drink it and then wash myself with it. After this he tied a sunkay (see last picture) around my neck and we were finished. I don't know if it helped or not, but the private plane to Bumthang took off and landed just perfectly.
