Artists on the rocks, and other stories

As I am trying to settle down from the extended new year party, the world at large has been going on, and I am playing catch. Here are some tidbits that miraculously penetrated through this hazy post-new-year syndrome.

Kunzang - VAST rock climbing

Artists on the rocks

Over at VAST, we had our winter program for kids, from December 24 to January 5, 2008. Thirty students aged between 8-19 years, mostly from schools in Thimphu, took part in our program where besides art, we introduced them to digital photography and computer graphics. Rock climbing was one of the weekend activities. Thanks to Arun, Palden and Dilu over at Bhutan Climbing Club for your expert guidance on the rock.

Been spending all my life in Bhutan and never thought about such a sport. Looks thrilling and exciting.
