Korea Path


My campaign to re-style Thanet as Kent's Ramsgate Peninsula is already coming to fruitation, to purloin a phrase first coined by Kevin Keegan.

I've been getting expressions of interest from another peninsula, Korea, where Dr Horace Jeffery Hodges, who teaches at Korea University's Department of English Language and Literature, has followed up my recent post about peninsula envy.

I'm sure that as soon as I've mentioned that Karl Marx was a frequent visitor to Ramsgate, where he believed the air was good for his boils, Dr Horace will be writing the brochures!

Dr. Marx visited Thanet? For boils therapy? Will wonders never cease?

I will consider it an honor to write brochures!

That's very kind of you sir! We have other famous connections - painters Van Gogh and Turner, the architect Pugin, and of course Charles Dickens. And we also have an international airport, so non-stop flights would be a possibility too!

Goodness. Thanet is an underappreciated peninsular island.

Thank you for the cultural and geographical lessons. The internet is a wonderful place.
