First Snow

The first snowfall of the winter arrived in Thimphu today. As with tradition, the day was declared a holiday and we all got off from work (technically we didn’t get the whole day off, the announcement came only about 2 hours we got in). In addition to covering much of Thimphu with a white blanket, the snow has brought out the monkey in the town’s male population. The boys (young and fully-grown specimens) are in full force on the streets, pelting passerbys (usually girls) with snowballs.

Glaring doesn’t help; once your back is turned, snowballs start whizzing by. Boys will be boys.

Boys will be boys
