Catching up with the Virtual Paintout in Bhutan

The Virtual Paintout is in Bhutan this month, not far from Bangladesh, 
where we were just over a month, and one return trip to Greenland, ago. 
My first explorations of this mountainous kingdom at the eastern end 
of the Hymalayas revealed a country pretty well encased in rain clouds... 
until I chanced upon the Taktsng Trail, north of Paro. From this location
about as far as the Google camera car could go, the famous 
Taktsang Monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest) can be seen, 
hanging high in the cliffs.
