HOLD THE DATE: AUG. 15 HAUNTED GHOST TOUR OF BEIJING

Dear RASBJ Members and Friends, 
     Thanks to all who joined our Western Qing Tombs excursion, led by one of Beijing's top experts on cultural heritage preservation, Matthew Hu Xinyu. The surroundings were full of imperial grandeur, brought to life by Matthew's commentary and "back story" tales of royal mayhem and murder. Meals included skewers and baijiu under the starry night sky, and a traditional Manchurian lunch. Fried grapes, anyone?
 
     Traditionally RASBJ takes a summer break in July and August. However this year we're making an important  exception:
 
    SAVE THE DATE! On August 15, 2019 celebrate the Hungry Ghost Festival by joining RASBJ on a Haunted Ghost Tour of Beijing. It will start just before dark, when the spirit world begins to stir. Details to follow. Hope to see you there!
 
     For those of you who are away all summer, RASBJ is back in action in September. For autumn we plan a discussion of Architecture and Heritage, an "Historical Beijing" pub quiz led by Lars Ulrik Thom, a weekend trip on the "warlord trail" in Shenyang, and much more.
