Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay graced the at the courtyard of the ruins in Paro yesterday

He could not believe what he saw, the absolute grandeur of Bhutanese genius pressing down on him. The towering mountains far up north were crowned in white. For what appeared like a long while, White didn’t even blink. The English explorer had lost his speech.
