Paro Valley, Bhutan
The Paro airport in Bhutan has one of the shortest runaways. The heart beats fast as you want a safe landing but you can’t decide if its this breathtaking view or the fear of the landing that made me skip a beat. The very view of this untouched valley makes you think if this is really a part of the same busy world that has a million buildings. Is there really such a beautiful part of the earth that has almost every shade of green in the same valley. Paro Valley and the river both can seriously make you fall in love with solitude, teach you sounds that you have never heard and show you a completely different side of life that is more yours than ever before. It is during these evenings that I spent in Bhutan that I started re-living my interests of watching the stars, reading as there was no internet or television. At one point started looking for a computer and we could barely find 10 homes/shops that had one. You don’t need a time machine to go back in the past, you just need to visit Bhutan. And by that I don’t mean that life has not progressed, people are much ahead of time, just that they are not corrupted by the technology but use it judiciously.
