Hello Everyone,

This posting is a little different than most. In this posting, I thought I would update you on a couple things that have happened as a result of this blog.

I continue to write for The Korea Times, and I’ve had two more articles published since the last time I made an entry about it. The first article is entitled “Driving in Korea,” And it garnered a lot of feedback, as well as a subsequent article attempting to say that driving in Korea isn’t that bad. Judge for yourself and check it out.

My article: Driving In Korea

And the rebuttal by someone else: Driving In Korea Is Not So Bad

I also wrote another article that I kind of hinted at with my posting about Wonhyoam Hermitage here in Yangsan, Gyeongsangnam-do. By chance I met a really nice monk at this hermitage, and we decided to have coffee together for 30 minutes. I write about this encounter in my second article for The Korea Times.

Finally, in the last bit of news about this blog, I recently won an “Honourable Mention” for a picture I took at Donghaksa Temple near Gongju, Chungcheongnam-do. I was surprised to win, as I tend to think that I’m more of a writer than anything, but was pleasantly surprised that I did win.

Again, thank you all for your continued support, and I hope to see you out there at a few temples!
