Avid birders Dayton and Sheri were an instant hit on our annual Wings of Prayer signature journey.
They were willing to get up earlier and go farther and later than anyone in the service of getting in some serious birding every day without missing out on the daily cultural activities.
Toward the second half of the journey, we stopped to attend a beautiful mask dance festival in a small village in central Bhutan. We dressed Dayton up in traditional Bhutanese finery and Sheri approved.
On the way back to our lodge in the Jakar valley, we stopped beside the road for a final look back at the lovely Ura village. That was when they decided to sneak a kiss; but not before we spotted the lovebirds!
