You Know You’re in Bhutan When:

  • The newspaper does a New Years spread recounting the year, and the first caption reads:  26 LIVESTOCK KILLED BY TIGERS.
  • You cannot use the phrase “Karma’s a bitch” because Karma is a common enough name that people will ask which Karma you are talking about.
  •  People call your cell phone over and over until you pick up.
  • You see children cremating a dog on the side of the road.
  • You see the only fire truck in Thimpu, and it reminds you of an antique you would see at an Encinitas street fair.
  •  Everywhere you go, you feel like you are paying in monopoly money.
