Afterword

ThimphuTech was the first technology blog in Bhutan. We started writing it in 2009, just as broadband and mobile internet started to take off. (Although internet in Bhutan was launched in 1999, it was either super-slow or super-expensive, and was only used by a selected few).

In the blog, we wrote about technology and food, but also about plenty of other stuff. The blog became popular and influential in Bhutan. A companion bi-weekly column -- Ask Boaz -- was published for many years in the Kuensel, Bhutan's national newspaper. (The complete Kuensel columns are available as an ebook, Blogging with Dragons).

We stopped updating the blog when we left Bhutan in 2014, but the information within the posts can still prove useful, and thus we decided to keep it online.

We thank all our readers.
Tashi Delek,
Boaz & Galit.

There's life after asparagus datsi

Asparagus is now in abundance. The price has stabilized at Nu 45 to 50 for a bunch of these delicious shoots. And if you're tired of the same old asparagus preparation, the New York Times food columnist, in perfect timing, has recently written a column with 12 asparagus recipe ideas under the headline "Steamed, Roasted, Stir-Fried, Grilled". The food photography is, as usual, superb. There's also a high-res PDF file (1.3MB) with the recipes and photos.
