We had the ultimate Bhutanese cultural experience and credit the success to Yeshi Dorji who guided us skillfully into Buddhist culture. We were able to have so many questions answered adroitly and with a depth of understanding that Yeshi was able to convery with his English language skill. The trip flowed so smoothy as we visited families, camped, walked about villages and visited Dzongs, etc. Yeshi possesses a sincerity and kindness that I believe is rare, at least in America. He is a delight to share time with. My husband and I were treated to such respectful and kind thoughtfulness. Another gift Yeshi possess is the ability to talk to anyone with apparent ease and effectiveness. Oh how I wish I was in Bhutan right now.
OF course the driver Sonam needs to be honored for his very safe driving. We enjoyed his quiet yet interested disposition. We felt safe the entire time and as Yeshi said if you feel safe then the happiness will follow and so it did. We had such a good time with both of these fine people. Darmindra was our driver for a dåay. We missed his delightfull cheeriness when he left.
I could not imagine a richer, more complete experience than that which we had with Windhorse. I miss your country, your people, your culture. The experiences will be revisited for a very long time.
So much gratitude to whomever paired us with Yeshi and Sonam.
