Thimphu, Bhutan •• Nov. 7, 2002 •• SolarQuest® iNet News Service •• These past few days we have had many meetings. We met in the lobby each day at 8 am, piled in three cars, then went about town all day back and forth, holding interesting and serious discussions.

This report will be revised with more details in due course. There has been little time so far to smell the roses. We are getting ready to leave for Chendebji at 8 am this morning. I think we will have a little time there to smell the roses.
