Passage Peer: The Guide

At the Punakha Dzong, it is mandatory for tourists to band together and go around with a designated, official guide. This is a picture of my guide, after the tour was over. We are passing through a narrow alley that connects the first courtyard to the second. Our guide is wearing the traditional dress for Bhutanese men: the gho. The alley is lit up by a single bulb.
