After our stop in Punakha we headed back to Thimphu. It was a race though against time as the highway was being closed for construction near Thimphu at a certain time so we had to make it back by then order to not have to wait several hours at the roadblock. Dewas drove like an F1 driver and we made it in good time.

I had some time free to wander around Thimphu on my own. The national stadium is right across the street from the Kisa Hotel where I stayed so that was my first stop.





And it turned out that there was a big darts tournament going on at the archery grounds of the stadium which was a nice surprise. While the men shoot with bows and arrows, the women play darts with what look essentially like lawn darts. They heckle each other when they prepare to throw. Itís rather entertaining.

The next day we went back to Paro where I would spend the last couple of nights of my trip.
