Alan and Carol McLennan-Smith visited Bhutan – a well-preserved country of colourful birds and happy people – at the end of 2014. But then Alan fell ill.

He has recovered sufficiently to show and tell, with some help from Carol.

Bhutan is a landlocked country between India and China at the eastern end of the Himalayas. According to Wikipedia it has made the transition from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy. In 2006, based on a global survey, Business Week rated Bhutan the happiest country in Asia and the eighth-happiest in the world.

The meeting, in the Fernkloof Reserve Hall, will begin at 19:00.
