Arrived in Paro - without luggage

I have happily survived the landing in Paro yesterday though my luggage arrived only today because of technical difficulties. Due to miscommunication on my side, my luggage is currently stuck in Paro and I'm in Thimphu. Due to road construction, it's about a three hours drive from Paro to Thimphu and therefore we are not able to pick up the luggage in Paro. Marianne Frei from www.phzh.ch will be coming to Thimphu tomorrow afternoon and I hope that my luggage will travel with her.

Consequence? I'm stuck in Thimphu with only my hand luggage. Due to weight constraints (my big bag was above the weight limit), my hand luggage contains only technology, books, and pictures. No clothes at all. So all I have is the things that I'm wearing. Not really nice but if you are going to a place like Bhutan, that's one of the things that you have to cope with.

I have to mention that folks here in Bhutan are really friendly. People at Helvetas help me to get my luggage and made many phone calls. And I got even a pyjama :-).

Guys, I'll be traveling down to Samtse on the 5th of April and will come back to you as soon as I have arrived in Samtse.
