History returned, sort of

A piece of history was returned to South Korea when France "loaned" the books back to Korea that French troops took during a raid 145 years ago. Read the story HERE.

One of the things I love about South Korea is how proud they are of their culture and history. Similar to Americans! Only, I'll bet it wouldn't have taken France 145 years to return the looted treasures if they were taken from the U.S.

It's great the French Government stepped up and returned the items. And obvious that it means a lot to the people of South Korea. I just can't figure out why they only did this as a five year renewable loan. France, you almost got it right.
