Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

One of the things that Hwasun is famous for (in korea) is the Dolmen sites. Dolmens are large rocks placed on other rocks. Though not as impressively shaped or cut as the ones in stonehenge, these dolmens are somewhat fascinating. The history and reasoning behind this is explained in a rather hefty book and essentially say that they're generally graves for richer persons a long long time ago. But the interesting thing was showing how it would have set up. also you learn that the supporting stones are underground. so the bump you thought was just land with a big rock on top was actually a dug out trench with two (or more) supporting pillars placed in and then covered up with dirt and grass and then the big rock. This spot ha an extremely high number of dolmen in it. from the dolmen remains and found artifacts, much has been learned of korean history
