|YUP we're headed up there on foot!|
|my excuse to stop again to catch my breath...|
|stilllllll so far|
|there is a cave in the rock that guru rimpoche spent time meditating. he is said to have arrived in bhutan flying on the back of a white tiger. the white tiger was his consort who had been shifted into a tiger|
|this is a little bit below the nest in the crack so if you follow the shrubs on the right that is the path directly below the tigers nest. this is where his consort (who was at one time in the shape of a tiger) is said to have meditated.|
|bhutan has the most beautiful insects.|
I had to say goodbye to Matt, Sonam and Tsering on the 3rd of September. It was a really strange feeling. we had been going going going for two and a half weeks living in close quarters and finding ways through landslides. It felt so wrong and empty without them. I met my new guide Dorji that morning, i felt bad because i did not want to see anyone at all nor could he compare to my last two weeks with sonam and tsering. He ended up being a really cool guy and spoke excellent english. He took me around thimpu and then I had to go upstairs and be sad for myself. Womp womp.
