  5. It is very praiseworthy to see that people of Bhutan are so pround of their king. I learned through an article of this subject that people of Bhutan score among the highest in the hapiness index and it is a country where wealth of the country is measured through hapiness of its subjects not material possessions. I am certain the land is blessed. I wish to visit Bhutan some day.

    Wishing the king and his beautiful bride a happy and blessed life together.

    Tashi Delek.. ( I am hoping this means something good)
