Dang, I didn't even need to see the actual post. I was guffawing as soon as I saw the title in my RSS reader...

But Cynthia? Please reconsider the internet access part.

I was keen for the isolation, but the lack of internet facility makes it solitude, so I lost interest.

trashalou said...

Would consider renovation?!!? Oh now you know that every Bhutanese estate agent is rubbing his hands with glee.

MrM said...

from the last photo MrsM may have inbuilt yakking facilities so solitude it ain't.

Note to self - must check on decent microwave model this weekend.

If you are not yet fluent in Dzongkha, a useful phrase when you relocate might be Tashi delek. It roughly translates as "auspicious blessings of the radiant Buddha nature and complete and unfailing happiness to you". I think that means "Hello".

Oh my! Is that a garage in the 2nd photo?!?!

Unable to visit home in danger of falling OFF mountain. Will instruct porters to bring bags to Yurt. Stop.

Jackie said...

You could make your own.

I didn't see any wires!

Dear Cynthia, I do like your new house. Very much. I see that our dear friend Jackie gave us instructions on how to make one. A tutorial, if you will. Perhaps a self-build, then. Circumvent the estate agents! Hurrah! A DIY internet-free village.

p.s. What's the weather like in Bhutan today?

Lucy said...

What?!! How would we know what you were doing?!

driftwood said...

gosh I wonder if the creepy sock man will be thrilled to advise you on the best socks to buy for such a move......... now that's a reason not to go if ever there was....

anne bebbington said...

I would imagine the air quality there must be wonderful

Gina said...

Like I said before... please don't go!

Viv said...

Dear Cynthia,
Do they wear gilets in Bhutan?
You might have to take MissM with you for sartorial advice.

P.S. The W.V. is zynado (does this tell me something- xanadu perhaps?)

No internet access? *shudder* A reminder that I am spoiled...rotten.

M said...

Okay, I could go without the internet access provided I had a - let's call him a Steward - to come and provide daily updates of the world outside.

Ha, this post reminds me of a few years ago when buying up French shacks to fix up was quite the thing amongst our friends and neighbours. My son, then three years old, announced on viewing the fixer-upper just purchased by some friends announced, "this is where the cows sleep".

Hmmm. I'm laughing about the sock man. I do think he should be consulted. But isn't that yurt amazing? It would be like living on the moon! Except you know we would all come and visit. I think.
