Just a quick thought

How do Bhutanese folks enter people into their cell phones? I mean, when 7 of your friends are named Ngawang Yeshi, and another two are named Kinley with no last name, how do you keep track of which is which? In our classes, kids have labeled themselves as Sonam Tshering A, Sonam Tshering B, Kinley Wangchuck 1-3, etc. It's functional. It would be a little demeaning in a peer relationship, though. How do you decide which of your friends is Kinley A?

This isn't a jab, by the way, it's a legitimate thought.

Also, sorry for updating so infrequently over the last two weeks. Real life is hard. I'll be back in force...soon...
