Out & About

Off to the Kingdom of Bhutan

Mar. 21, 2017

Heading out shortly to the Kingdom of Bhutan to interview Bhutan Supreme Court Chief Justice Lyonpo Tshering Wangchuk which story will appear in The Asia Times. After the interview was scheduled and I was reading CJ Wangchuk's  CV, I learned that he received his LLM degree from my alma mater, George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C. A very, very small world indeed. 


I will also have the pleasure of meeting "Married to Bhutan" author, Linda Leaming, a Nashville, TN native, resident in Bhutan, and yes married to Bhutan. For non-fiction lovers, whether jet setters or armchair travelers, "Married to Bhutan" is an wonderful read, as is Leaming's second book, "A Field Guide to Happiness."


While in Bhutan, known for its "Gross National Happiness" quotient, a concept written into its Constitution, I will also be writing travel stories which will appear in various media outlets. Stay tuned.
