2S2 is a regular meet-up where expats, and anyone, can get together, build and strengthen connections, learn about Korea and integrate in Korean society. We hope that 2S2 will help expats in Korea participate more meaningfully in the country we share with Korean natives, and that we can have a better experience of Korea by doing so.

And here are some pictures from February's 2S2, hosted by the venerable Chris in South Korea, who wrote about the 2S2 get-together here.

These two lovely ladies joined us this time, for the swing dance lesson and the ice gallery tour.

If we can get them to come to every meetup, I'm sure the male attendance would skyrocket... I'll have to look into that.

Seriously, though, we had a great time.

It was also the long weekend of seollal, so we were worried that places would be closed, however, this lady's place was open... and wonderful. She specializes in fermented foods, which she all makes herself, and the bossam was just the beginning of the wonders. We literally ordered one of everything on the menu, to try it all, and we were not disappointed.

it's difficult to describe, but these little, pickled garnishes were far and away the best thing about the meal, and brought out something interesting in every combination, with every other food.

then we headed up to the ice gallery, where we could pick up extra layers for the tour of a giant freezer, loaded with fantastic ice art.

Chris and his lady liked the ice love motel. It left me cold, though.

After the tour, we carved blocks of ice into beer/orange soda mugs.

It was cold, but fortunately, Jo was a willing "plan B" if you jacket didn't keep the cold out well enough.
