Dae-Wang Am After A Storm

King Munmu, the 30th King of the Shilla Dynasty, achieved the unification of the countries of the Korean peninsula in AD 688. The King used to express his desire to become a dragon after his death to protect his kingdom from enemies. When the king died he was buried under a great rock in the East Sea in accordance with his will and transformed into the guardian dragon of the kingdom.

Travel Photo Of The Week: Monkeys Monkey and more Monkeys!

So last week we posted the first Travel Photo of the week in the last month. We have been really struggling to get the weekly photos up due to slow and unreliable internet in Asia and, more recently, on a boat.
