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.

Trongsa Dzong

On the way from Bumthang to Gangtey you have to pass through Trongsa. A cute little town that has the highlight of the local fortess.  The Trongsa Dzong is the largest dzong in the country. It was constructed in the 1600's by Shabdrung, a Tibetan Lama who would help unify Bhutan.  It's a gateway between the east and west of Bhutan, so a very central key point for politics of the country.

The last picture is a little past the dzong, and was an old temple on a hill with a monk making a kora (a circling around) of it. I thought it looked very pretty.
