Spring Time with the RAS Korea

Dear members and friends of RAS Korea

I would like to encourage you to think very seriously about the benefits of staring hard and long at blossoming trees. Because we are organizing several excursions this month designed precisely with that activity in mind.
Why not join us on one (or even two)? Sign up soon!

This coming weekend, on Sunday, April 14, there is a wonderful full-day outing to Woraksan National Park, Gosu Cave & Chungju Lake. It includes a drive along a 6-kilometer-long avenue of cherry trees, as well as a restful boat trip and a visit to a spectacular cavern. This trip is a great favorite with families.

Then on Sunday, April 21 there will be a trip entirely devoted to cherry blossom in and around Seoul, the climax being the Ho-am Art Museum in Yongin, Gyonggi-do and its beautiful HeeWon garden.

On Sunday, April 28 you can enjoy the unique collection of magnolias and camellias in the Chollipo Arboretum, overlooking the sea on the West coast, at the moment when the flowers are at their height.This Arboretum was established by a former President of the RASKB, Mr. Ferris Miller (1921 - 2002) and its collections are world-famous.

In addition there will be an overnight in-depth visit to the ancient Silla capital of Gyeongju Saturday, April 27 -- Sunday, April 28, led by David Mason, an outstanding and expert guide.

Finally, let me remind you that tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at 7:30pm Professor Andrei Lankov will be giving us a lecture about "The female face of North Korean capitalism: North Korean gender relations in the post-famine era" because there are more important and interesting aspects to North Korea than its inflated rhetoric. The lecture will be in Somerset Palace.

I hope that many of you will be able to join us at these events.

Brother Anthony
President, RAS Korea
