Residential area on the way to Thimphu
On the way back to the Paro valley and to Thimphu we passed a small village were we could rest for a while. I forgot its name but not the warm hospitality from the villagers and the invitation to visit their rebuilt monastery. The drawing of the phallus on house walls is a sign for the power and protection against bad influences. In Bhutan the phallus is an integral part of ceremonies observed by communities, commonly used to ward off evil spirits and counter evil.
