Sunday Post: Culture

Some people retain their local historic culture better than others who give way to the all-pervasive western culture. We loved to see Bhutanese culture when we were there, the people so proud and natural in their national dress. We were able to visit a cultural festival in a remote place, where there were no roads, the only access was by foot, and involved crossing a narrow bridge over a rushing river. Our Bhutanese guide and driver delivered us safely and explained it all to us as we watched. Bhutan is a Buddhist country so the dances have a very significant role in maintaining the fabric of life, of keeping the balance of nature creating harmony for all creatures.
