Pedaling along the area’s only major road at elevations of more than 50,000 feet was an eye-opening experience for the executive. “As international industries, the tile and stone sectors acquaint us with different countries and cultures worldwide,” he said. “We need to learn from other countries, such as Bhutan, that happiness can indeed be attained whether one lives in a world power nation, or a remote, tiny third-world venue.” His trek lasted 11 days. Laticrete sells products to Bhutan through its India-based subsidiary.
