Bhutan: Well Hidden and Well Worth It

I fell under the spell of Bhutan after reading a feature in National Geographic when I was 10 years old. I'd wanted to visit the place ever since. So last May, when I got a phone call in my Bangkok apartment asking if I would be interested in helping at a democracy conference in Bhutan, I shouted so loud in delight that my cat kamikazed through a screen and landed on top of a car in the street below. I haven’t seen it since.
