Three Wise Monkeys

This is a photo of Jemimah's Daddy and two Bhutanese friends. Her Daddy is Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil. On the left, Jigme is Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil. On the right, Sangey is Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil.

For those of you who, like me, wouldn't recognise the stuff if they were crouching in a field of it, our sanzaru (wise monkeys) are crouching in a field of wild marijuana.

The Bhutanese call it 'pig feed' and, yep, you guessed it, they feed it to their pigs. No drug problem at all.... or so they say...

P.S. One more Bhutan post and I'm finished. Hope you're not too bored.


  1. Oh my word! I didn't realize it until you said so... glad to be naive!

    My, those must be interesting pigs... wonder what happens if you eat the pork?


  2. It grows wild here, too, but not like that! Not that much!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
