Travel Photo: Bumthang Man opposite Kurje Lakhang, Bhutan

I was on my way to one of the top temples in Bhutan, the Kurje Lakhang in the Bumthang region of Bhutan, but prior to reaching this temple, I had walked for more than 10 kilometers and had a parched throat. It was cold and dry and I was on the look out for a hot cup of tea when I sighted this small shop opposite the Kuje Lakhang temple.

I did not find my hot cup of tea here, but was lucky enough to engage in some interesting conversation with the Bumthang local shopkeeper and he was kind enough to pose for me. His red lips (owing to chewing betel nut), the colourful window, my reflection in the slightly tinted window and the two telecom service provider stickers on the window glass make for a special memory for me. Even though I had no tea here, I still ended up chatting with this shopkeeper for more than 30 minutes.
