When someone told me I live in a Fantasy Land, I nearly fell off of my unicorn.

Most everyone in Nepal lack a joie de vivre as they struggle against poverty, the caste system, corruption, and finally, earthquakes! Everyone there would love to just get up and move to another country! Bhutan, another landlocked, impoverished country, right next door, high in the Himalayas, is one of the Happiest nations in the world and no one wants to leave!  How come? What does it mean to be Happy, how to attain it, can nations actually be measured on a Happiness Scale? My trip to Bhutan last spring was an exploration to see for myself if they were really happy and how they achieve it.  Moreover, I made a personal vow to Practice Happiness in Nepal to see if and how I could make others happy. I was skeptical but gained amazing insights.
