A Bridge between China and the Rest of the World


     Recently RASBJ veered off the beaten track  for a two-day excursion to the Western Qing Tombs. Most of the time we had the necropolis to ourselves, exploring four imperial tombs and overnighting at a charming local guesthouse. One unexpected highlight was a traditional Manchu banquet in a village originally populated by imperial tomb guardians. This idyllic visit is our last before a summer break -- but save the date on  Aug. 15 for a special Haunted Ghost tour of Beijing!

    Also many thanks to the British embassy which generously hosted RASBJ members to a drinks reception and talk in May on "Energy geopolitics and China's domestic and international strategy".
