While this is a philosophical approach to governing a nation, it seems to be working. The present king’ s father developed this plan with Buddhist principles in mind and not the Western way. He put forth the following goals: sustainable development, preservation and promotion of cultural values, conservation of the natural environment and good governance. While not a political analyst, I am impressed with what I witnessed. They also soak up more greenhouse gases than they emit.
I will be blogging about my full week of adventures in the next two posts. What a wonderful place!
