Thimphu city walks – Exploring streets and backstreets of Thimphu

Sometimes I walk the streets and -even more- the backstreets of Thimphu. There is a lot to see and to discover especially if you  are not searching for anything in particular. The lively atmosphere given by every-day-life,  improvisation talent of the people, rather chaotic but most often very interesting ways of arranging and handling things, the many accidental encounters with unique, interesting people of all ages and with different background and also with different outfit -some in a more traditional rural style, some more urban fashion type- who most often still have time, words and smiles to share and the combination of all the above mentioned points make Thimphu very attractive to anyone who is curious and has an open mind, open eyes and an open heart, ready to discover little treasures or remarkable situations behind every corner..
