Great mcmtanyel 2019-01-09 20:28

Hello Gert,
Hey, are sure that child is not Scottish? He's wearing a kilt! I love the textures in the photo with the man carrying a prayer wheel.
Regards,
MT

Default To mcmtanyel: no kilt

Thank you Murat,
No, it's not a kilt, it's the lower part of a garment known as a "gho", traditionally worn by Bhutanese men and boys.
This is from the internet:
The men in Bhutan adorn themselves in a knee length, robe-like cloth which is wrapped around their bodies and nicely secured with a belt. Known as 'Gho', this outfit forms a pouch-like area in the upper part and is used for storing various things- traditionally betel nuts but now mobile phones! It is highly worn during formal occasions and large gatherings.
Best wishes,
Gert
