Faces of Bhutan: Part 2

Faces of Bhutan: Photos of Bhutanese people busy in their daily activities
One thing I loved doing the most in Bhutan was people watching. The 'Faces of Bhutan' project is a collection of photos of Bhutanese people engaged in their daily activities.

Every time I travel to a new place, I make sure to devout some time to my favourite activity – people watching. I love observing people as they are busy in their routine.

Bhutan is the place where I met and observed some of the most interesting people. I spent three nights at a farm house in Paro, got invited to join Buddhist monks for a lunch, visited some interesting places, and ate delicious food while in Bhutan.

The ‘Faces of Bhutan’ project showcases photos of Bhutanese people engaged in their routine activities. This is the second part of the two-part series. The first part of Faces of Bhutan is found here.

‘Faces of Bhutan’ is a tribute to the people of Bhutan. It’s a thank you for all their love, hospitality, and a memorable time. I would love to receive your feedback on this project. Feel free to add your comments. If you like this project, please share it with others.
