About the Event
Join Barry Pell as he takes us on an adventure to the small and predominantly Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, squeezed between China and India. Tucked within the rugged Himalaya mountains and mostly covered with thick forest, this area abounds with monasteries, often massive and commanding, with crimson-robed monks performing centuries-old rituals. The country has no traffic lights, smoking is illegal, and employees must wear traditional clothing during work hours. Years ago, the nation identified Gross National Happiness as being more important than Gross National Product. Join Barry and enjoy this photo journey as he shares insights from meeting its people and learning their history and culture. To obtain Zoom link, please register.
