The children, in their traditional Bhutanese dress, were playing in the yard of the Thuksel Early Learning Center in Paro, Bhutan. The teachers gave me permission to photograph for a few minutes and this group was very excited to line up and pose for me. I was especially taken with the little girl in front who stood perfectly still while everyone around her jostled for position.

Still in Bhutan (photograph was taken Oct 3 2014), we stop at a weaving facility, Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Centre. In here are a couple of rooms where women are sitting on the floor with their looms, handweaving cloth. The yarn is bright and colourful and the patterns are intricate.
