Photographer's Note

This is Christmas morning in the town of Tongsa in west-central Bhutan. Our accommodations there consisted of a very large hotel room with a tiny wood stove in the middle and a pile of rather green firewood which did not burn well. Outside it was maybe -3 C (upper 20's F), so it was a pretty cold sleep! But looking out on this scene in the morning made it worth it.

In the distance below is Tongsa Dzong, a combined administrative headquarters and monastery. There is no separation of church and state in Bhutan!
