In July,  they are showing a film of Lewis Carroll’s brief trip to Russia in 1870.

The president of our taekwondo association recently popped over from Korea, I asked him if he had any Russian connections. He said that when he first came to UK, he taught a Russian student from one of the big Russian ballet companies. He also said there is a Korean Master he knows of who is ‘somewhere’ in Russia. Somewhere is a good place to start looking should I ever be there long enough 😉
