Happy holiday

A welcome sight

A welcome sight

Today, finally, after two years, it snowed in Thimphu. So, we got to enjoy a unique tradition: we did not attend office.

Nobody seems to know when it started or how it started, but tradition dictates that Thimphu residents – especially public servants – avoid going to office on the day the city receives its first snowfall of the season. And like most officer-goers in Thimphu, I take this tradition very seriously.
