Just when I thought I was in shape…

We were equipped with walking sticks, lightweight Patagonia gear and Power Bars, huffing and puffing through a  3 mile, 2000 vert ft hike to a temple above Paro. And then this 66 year old guy in ratty shoes and a gho passes us, carrying an 80 pound board to the village, a board he milled with a hand saw, to have tables made for his sutras. And he wasn’t even sweating.
