Prayer flags in primary colours

Prayer flags in Bhutan, in primary colours or pure white, flutter in the cold winds of the mountains. For us, they served as motivator landmarks (let's reach the next group of flags and then take a five minute break) as we huffed and puffed our way to the 'Tiger's nest' monastery up the hill. For locals, it takes about an hour or so, but for us unfit, sedentary, city dwellers, it took more than two hours, mainly due to the uphill climb, but also because we kept stopping to take pictures of the breathtaking view from every angle.
