Paro Archery Grounds
who's your buddy?
I LOVE this photo because it is the essence of Bhutan! Watching some of the world's best archers at the Archery Grounds in Paro is amazing- we could barely SEE the target from the end where the archers stood, but they hit is dead center time after time! Dogs are everywhere in this country and hotel booking can sometimes be a challenge given that they howl and bark at all hours. We found the Uma Paro to be an exquisite respite from the din of the valley as it is perched high above the town center. Awe inspiring scenery, unusual sights, friendly welcoming people (our driver invited us to both his house and his cousin's for meals during our stay) and peaceful temples only steps away from anywhere. No wonder the country measures itself in GNH (gross national happiness.)
