So happy . . .

In Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan, the road signs might just take you by surprise:

  • “Life is a journey! Complete it!”
  • “Let nature be your guide”
  • “Inconvenience regretted”

These life-affirming mantras are probably to be expected in a country which rejects GDP as the only way to measure progress, and instead proposes a new measurement: GNH – gross national happiness.


I’m going to be thinking about that on my drive into work tomorrow.
