Asia is a world away from my home town life – it’s exotic, colorful, noisy, crowded, and full of ritual and deep history and religion. I’ve made trips to Bhutan and Myanmar, both so very different culturally, yet bound in some way by the traditions of Buddhism. This is a collection of my favorites from the two areas.
