Don made a recent trip to Bhutan and provided these comments. "Bhutan is the most beautiful place in the world.
We watched the three-day royal wedding on TV at our hotels.  It, too, was spectacular!   I'm sure the outside world saw only a few minutes of it.  Bhutan is a true story-book kingdom:  handsome King, loved by his subjects; beautiful Queen, virtually no poverty, everyone living in lovely houses, snow-capped mountains, ...."

Sounds like a Bhutan should be put on my list of places to visit.
