transit to Korea
Today fly to Seoul from Osaka. This is similar to flying from Auckland to Sydney, or Sydney to Brisbane. From Seoul we will take a train and then probably a bus to the National Arboretum of Korea, located in a forest that has had protected status for hundreds of years.
I look forward to leaving behind the heat island of urban Osaka. I have two chapters by two different students to look at while I am travelling. Perhaps I will have some useful thoughts while sitting in a cool place, away from the distractions of the office.
