Some Bhutanese young people

This young monk was intent on his mission -- I think that was delivering lunch to someone.

This boy insisted I must take his picture, but when I clicked the shutter, his friend seemed more pleased than he did.

We were an unfamiliar distraction, I think.

Adult work for a small person ...

At play outside a temple ... perhaps his relatives were within.

These are middle school students at morning assembly. We were told that one third of Bhutanese are in some kind of schooling and that the country (population ca. 700,000) produces 3000 college graduates annually. It is not clear Bhutan produces a commensurate number of jobs requiring higher education.
