Blog of the Week – Words Fail Me (or What It’s Like to Live in Bhutan)

Elizabeth Shelton 03-21-2014

“Putting this experience into words seems an impossible chore, and has from the moment I arrived. It’s just so different in so many amazing and powerful ways.”

It has been said that the best way to get to know a country is by experiencing it. BCF teacher Ashley Lenzen and husband Mike have done an amazing job sharing what life is like for them in Bhutan. Her most recent post  Words Fail Me (or What It’s Like to Live in Bhutan) proves that words have not at all failed her, though it is the experiences and people that have the most impact.

“I am so lucky to be here doing what I am doing. As promised, this post didn’t do Bhutan much justice… but, unless you came yourself, I don’t think you could ever truly understand. Maybe that’s why I can’t seem to explain it… it needs to be experienced.”  – Ashley
