When the dragon meets the clouds, peace is at hand. Vietnamese Proverb
Listen well to my story, because once upon a time in a distant land there was a fairy princess named Âu Cơ. She lived high in the mountains and had a warm heart. With her abundant kindness, Âu Cơ became a skilled doctor, healing the mountain people of their sicknesses with endless compassion. But one day she was very frightened by a monster, who scared her so much, Âu Cơ turned herself into a crane and flew far far away to safety.
And where did her crane wings fly her to safety? To the protection of Hạ Long Bay, where the dragon descends into the ocean.
