In Remembrance

Ganesh, one of our drivers in Bhutan, lights a series of butter candles in remembrance of his grandmother, who had passed away several months before. The main road in Bhutan, which transverses almost the entire country, going from the heights of the Himalaya to the tropical jungle of India, has hundreds of small temples and rooms such as this. The rooms, which usually have a few closed windows and no ventilation, become sauna-like and filled with the smoke and smell from the candles. But, if you can stand the heat, one is rewarded with images such as this one.
