Thank you Save the Children Bhutan for organizing the #BESAFEWITHSAVE competition, which inspires children and stimulates them intellectually. We appreciate it that you remind them to stay safe during this time of crisis.
Here is a copy of a short essay written by my 11-year old niece, Sonam Gyelmo for the competition. She creatively addressed question 2 regarding who are her superheroes of COVID-19 and why.
🇧🇹 Sticker n. 34: What better place to stick the sticker than in the country where the "gross national happiness index" is more important than GDP? This year I was lucky enough to share the roof with a lovely girl who lives there, who shown me this fascinating country and its unique culture. It remains the only one of the entire anxiety still to preserve its traditions and customs; leaving out the "poisoned" by Western culture that everything changes in trade and showcase.
A special thanks to @wangchens_fav to contribute to this of sticking to the world.

Part of food experience 👉
Food exploration in new areas/restaurants leads you to pleasant surprises, and at times unpleasant ones too. Had an unpleasant pizza experience at Mongar. Ordered the following small size pizzas- (Paneer (Nu.240/-), mix. veg., (Nu.220/-), spicy double cheese (Nu.
230/-), spicy garlic (Nu.250/-) from Hotel Druk Dzom located in main town. The pictures on the banner looked tempting 🤤. However, to my disappointment- all varieties of pizza looked, and tasted the same. All fillings burnt, tasteless, and the quantity of cheese 👎! I could taste only the plain crust 😐. My dinner for the night!!!
The summer (monsoon) has just set in. Agriculture has seen plantation in full-swing; farmers have their toils toiled. The seedlings are to take the nourishment from the elements and lead to fruition of the autumn season.
