Last weekend a couple of Hanyang brethren and myself went down to Busan to make a visit to Pusan Lodge #1675 on the Rolls of the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
We took the KTX and met some other brothers at Busan station in the afternoon. From there we made our way to the lodge via subway and taxi.
When we reached the lodge, we partook in some pre-harmony while waiting for the other brethren to arrive.
I managed to sneak a peek at the lodge room before it was tyled. It’s nice that they can leave the lodge furnishings out when they’re not around. We always have to pack everything up after we finish.
We waited outside while the Pusan brethren opened lodge. Apparently they wanted to receive us within an official capacity as we were all first time visitors. It’s nice to feel special.
As first time visitors, we were each presented with a piece of lambskin with a masonic poem entitled “The Lamb Skin” which all the Pusan brethren signed the back of.
After which, we enjoyed a third degree followed by a a very fine harmony. The Pusan brethren were all very friendly and personable.
I hope I can visit Pusan Lodge again in the not too distant future, I had a pretty swell time there and I’d also like to get to know some of the brethren more. Also, I wouldn’t mind enjoying some time on the beach in Busan. Until next time.
