a postscript to The Year of the Korean 2016
Sometime into 2017 I read an absolutely fascinating essay/interview in PRIME TIMES:Writers On Their Favorite TV Shows edited by Douglas Bauer.  It's Mark Leyner on and with South Korean director Jang Ki-Duk and his cultural critic take on the original CBS TV show HAWAII FIVE-O with Jack Lord as Steve McGarrett.  He views the whole experience as a hullicination from the time Jack/Steve is trapped in a sensory deprivation tank by the evil Chinese Wo Fat.  What a howl!  [Also, in a way, very Korean.  So much occidentalism they neither want nor need for themselves so they can take that attitude as occidentals like me cannot.]

2017:THE YEAR OF THE TASMAN SEA AND FRIENDS

The TASMAN SEA, which lies between NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA, was discovered by Dutch navigator Abel Janszoon Tasman in the mid 1600s.

Of course, before Abel arrived and started naming the European way, life had been there for a very long time.

The Tasman Sea itself, of course, has been around for A VERY VERY LONG TIME
see:
Science Direct
www.sciencedirect.com
search for "Tasman Sea" for scientific papers

The real truth, buster, is more like "Issues in Practice" of the UOL/IOE applied to Artile 15 2-b of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 the right to change nationality

Of personal educational interest to me but might also be of interest to my readers:Tim Armstrong, English teacher at Royal Holloway University of London, who was born and went to college in New Zealand

MESSAGE:I prefer BARDO [Tibetan=waiting after death and before reincarnation  Portuguese-bard] to Basho by a LONG shot
[as opposed to slow lane study of the Japanese poet Basho which is well worth the effort]
