Married to Bhutan (How One Woman Got Lost, Said " I Do," and Found Bliss)
Description
Back of the Book

Tucked away in the eastern end of the Himalayas lies magical Bhutan- a tiny, landlocked country bordering China and India. Impossibly remote and nearly inaccessible, Bhutan is rich in natural beauty, exotic plants and animals, and crazy wisdom. It is a place where people are genuinely content with very few material possessions, and the government embraces “Gross National Happiness” instead of Gross National Product.

As one of the few Americans to have lived in Bhutan, Linda Leaming offers a rare glimpse into the quirky mountain kingdom so many have only dreamed of visiting. For over ten years, she has lived and worked in Thimphu, a town with fewer than 100,000 people, no traffic lights, and less than- desirable plumbing. Learning shares her experiences as she learns the language, customs, and religion; her surprising romance with a Buddhist artist; and her realizations about the unexpected path to happiness and accidental enlightenment. She shows us that we don’t necessarily have to travel around the world to appreciate a little Bhutan in our own lives, and that following our dreams is the way to be truly happy.

About the Author

Linda Leaming is a writer whose work has appeared in Ladies’ Home Journal, Mandala, Guardian Uk, A Woman’s Asia (Travelers’ Tales, 2005), and many other publications. Eric Weiner included her in his 2008 best- seller, The Geography of Bliss. She has an M.F.A. in fiction from the University of Arizona; and she regularly speaks about Bhutan at colleges, churches, seminars, and book groups.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
