Here in Korea, today is 대보름 or 大보름(Daeboreum - First full moon of the Lunar New Year). Traditionally, farmers would burn their fields to destroy unwanted plants and fertilize the ground. Celebrations abound in order to wish for good health in the New Year.

I find this fitting since this celebration corresponds to the final day of Whiskerino. In the background of this photo, you can see an improvisation of the field burning celebration (this is my guess anyway). As I watch the bonfire commence tonight, I wish you all the best in the New Year (whichever one you follow).

It has been a great ride. 안녕 (goodbye)

God bless you, my friend! We really should get together sometime. I have this habit of taking my laptop and traveling the world. I might end up on your porch.

Well, Mr. Beach. I hope you were able to raise a little bit of money to help save our oceans. It's been a blast following you for the last 4 months. Good luck out there.

You should totally burn your beard to celebrate. That would be more insane than growing it on a website for 4 months with a bunch of dudes.

I hope you are enjoying Korea. Make sure to eat some beondegi while you're there*. It was fun growing and showing with you this year, sir.

*Don't really. It's cooked silk worm larvae and it tastes bad. You can smell a street vendor selling it from a block away. Ugh.
