Are you going to URA, Bumthang? I need your help.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I were in Bhtan last may -it was a fabulous trip. We arranged it through Uma. Our guide took us to Ura village in Bumthang and we visited a farmer's house, I can write pages of how much we enjoyed everything but that is not why I am posting. Anyhow, when we were leaving I asked the farmer's 17 year old daughter if she wants anything from US that I could send her for their hospitality. After some time and lots of persuation on our part she asked for a camera.
I bought a camera and a memory chip and a case for $200 and then I found out that the only way I am able to send this is through US mail with no insurance and I can not ask for a signature either. And I don't know if I want to do that. What are the chances that it will get there? I posted this message before and asked for some help. I had one answer that I liked and that was to ask someone to take this for me, if I could find that person.
If you are going to URA anytime soon, would you be willing to help?
I know this camera will make the whole village very happy.
Thank you, Adeleh

Thank you
