A few of us played monopoly in a cafe, while others went around site seeing. Later on we met up and had a little ranting fest on the tree-less nature of Gwanghwamun plaza.
And as much as I would love to gush about how equal the number of guys to gals there were at the meet up, the truth is that most of this is not actually true.
Only 3 people showed up, including myself and we didn't play monopoly (although I toted it with me). But that doesn't mean we didn't have a good time.
The three of us know that in the beginning there will be few. I for one feel that most people who read about us trying to put this together are skeptical, but really just want to see what happens first before stepping in.
And we understand that not everyone lives in or near Seoul. We agreed that if this got off the ground with more planning that 2S2 could be like a package. Give the "2S2 package" to folks in Daegu and see what they come up with.
Let's just remain with the same vision of building a connected expat community and what it means to us. And we can also discuss why this doesn't make sense and whether it is really necessary anyways. All in all, we have generated buzz on this through a survey and other posts so the idea must be floating around in your head.
Why not come out to next month's meeting, or we could meet via skype, and let's talk about ideas and visions.
For now the discussion can remain on the interwebs, and I would like to leave you with this idea I had:
A community garden.
