Next mrng we woke up in Thimpu , it was 31st dec .We visited Dochula Pass ,Punakha Dzongkha & Suspension Bridge. And Started falling in love with architecture, people of Bhutan . Standing on suspension bridge watching sunset was tranquil & comforting . Walked back to our traveller with a smile as every passing day was getting enriching more & more .Stopped midway at dhaba to get warmth from heater(anghitis) on a cold evening alongwith with a hot drink and a friendly banter with co travellers made it just right .Day cannot end so soon when it’s 31st dec eve.We chose to party at a club didn’t know it can be that crazy!Drinks ,live band ,dance & mad crowd.Still can’t get over that night.
