Chasing the thunder dragon

July 11, 2009

Did you ever think you would?

–  Dance with snow-lions and banter with the clowns at a colorful festival?

–  Try a fiery dish of chilies and cheese?

–  Hike into a gravity defying monastery & then soak in a stone bath?

– Be blessed by a 10-inch wooden penis?

– Gaze into the snow-peaked Himalayas, while sitting among 108 chortens?

You can do all these and much more on the next GyspyFeet trip to Bhutan –

In the Land of the Thunder Dragon

For details on the trip visit the Gypsyfeet website

The detailed itinerary is up.

P.S. Biggest highlight of the trip? Me.(though I was not allowed to highlight this in our brochures)

yes ,this time I will be your guide as we hike up the mountains.I lead from behind – mostly because my stamina will give up after the first one hour .

Seriously ,would you rather have a fast talking “madam this is taj mahal and now look to your right there is fatehpursikri and please hurry up IhaveAnotherGroupWAitingAndIsThisYourFather’sTripThatyouThinkYouHaveAllTheTimeInTheWorld….” guide or ME?

I promise not to feign interest in obscure paintings in some musty musuem halls.

    Yay!! Awesome!! Esp the biggest highlight 😉 (crossing fingers and hoping the firang clients lemme leave for good before Sep…. wondering if I can use the Gypsyfeet trip as the “unavoidable circumstances” excuse to head homewards!)

        Aussieland. Job-hunting and all.

        Btw, I came back to ask you..whats the deal with this 10-inch wooden penis? I read it here but didn’t ask you anything about it in my previous comment, but its been at the back of my head. So pliss to be telling the story..or legend..or whatever history there is.
