Challenge #27 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
Have you been to Bhutan? Nope, me neither. It's one of the most inaccessible countries on earth...strict limits on how many outsiders can visit each year. But for those lucky few, they get astonishing vistas, colorful locals, exotic festivals, and some of the friendliest people on earth. For this challenge, you can enter portraits (any type), nature, culture, architecture, etc. Anything that captures the spirit of Bhutan in your eyes. Please, enter images that you've not already used in prior challenges . . . let's see something fresh and new from you. (I will likely depend on help from other challenge participants in tracking down violators. So, images that are repeats could be DQ'd at any time . .. even after the challenge ends!) Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules.
