My main hangout in my brief time in Boulder was the Dushanbe Teahouse. It is a stunning structure that was a lavish gift to Boulder from its Tajikistan sister of Dushanbe. The
bright, airy building was handcrafted in Asia and then disassembled and shipped in pieces to Boulder. It sat crated for years until the City of Boulder found the will, and the funds, to permit Asian artisans
to reconstruct the exquisitely carved cedar columns, mosaic panels, and painted ceilings into a remarkable room.
