Just want to point out that I did not sling at the Buddha. It would have been easy though, his ear is taller than three men stacked up. Bhutan is a beautiful country, almost beyond description. A lot like Sikkim except the mountains are taller, the valleys deeper, and there are far fewer people. I really wanted to sling here, not because of the big golden guy but rather because it was the first place I had seen in a week with no people in sight, but I thought the possible offense was too high a risk. The, "but I wasn't aiming at it..." defense rings hollow when dealing with a national treasure I suppose.
