Take a virtual tour of beautiful Bhutan with Founders Hall instructor Mari Lewis and her husband, Ian, on Friday, Aug. 25, at 1 p.m. \u201cBhutan is like a gem hidden in the Himalayas,\u201d says Mari. Nestled between China and India in the eastern Himalayas, Bhutan has terrain that ranges from subtropical to 25,000 feet. This predominantly Buddhist kingdom only began to open to outsiders in the mid-1970s. Calling Bhutan their \u2018dream destination,\u2019 the Lewises traveled there last November and were captivated. \u201cThere is a quiet, serene beauty that touches one\u2019s heart,\u201d says Mari. They will share that beauty with you through photos of scenery ranging from rice fields and rivers to Himalayan passes. The Lewises will also convey Bhutan\u2019s culture through photos of fortresses (dzongs), monasteries, monks and nuns, schools and students, and dwellings from farmhouses to cities. During this travelogue, you\u2019ll learn about the country\u2019s religion, symbolism, education, sports and food. If you have an adventurous palate, you can taste the fiery Bhutan staple \u2018ema datse\u2019 (chili cheese), which Mari will prepare and serve. The Bhutan travelogue is sponsored by Union Savings Bank. A Wine and Cheese Reception for new members takes place on Tuesday, Aug. 29, 6 to 7:30 p.m. Fall semester registration is due on Tuesday, Aug. 29.
