Bhutan Buddhist Paintings 
The following are a collection of some of the shots of Buddhist art work I took while visiting Dzongs, Temples, Monasteries within Bhutan. I could only take a small fraction of what we saw as photos are not allowed within the temples. These are all pictures from outside walls and entrances......

This is the busiest intersection in Bhutan. The city of Thimpu(Bhutan's capital) did put in the countries first street light here but it was quickly removed after much protest. Note the dog resting in the street...very common to have a few dogs sleeping in the intersection.
