What My Guy Yut Told Me

In Cambodian tradition there are tales of Dragons. In Khmer folklore (the Khmer are the people of Cambodia) the King provided the entirety of his people with the land and the resources they yearned for through marrying a beautiful and powerful dragon princess. The mighty dragon family drained the sea that surrounded their land. Previously restricted from expansion because of the island they inhabited, the Khmer were then able to prosper even further. The full land of Cambodia was only truly revealed by the power of Dragons.

My experience in Cambodia was only possible because of the connections of Dragons as well. Where There Be Dragons is leading me through this unfamiliar, complex and intricately beautiful world, and opening doors to a land of journeys I would have never been exposed to, or even imagined that I could be.
