Today is the first Christmas party of two, this season. I guess it’s the universe making up for zero Christmas parties in 2012. Today is the party for the whole of UMB and I will use it as an excuse to have free dinner, but not much more.

I therefore post pictures from our night with soju in Korea.


With the soju came cabbage and pasta free of charge. Strange Koreans.

We only found one decent beer:




Soju (Hangul 소주; Hanja 燒酒) is a distilled beverage native to Korea. Jinro and Lotte soju are the first and third top selling alcohol brands in the world.[1] It is usually consumed neat.

Most brands of soju are made in South Korea. It is traditionally made from ricewheatbarley, but modern producers of soju use supplements or even replace rice with other starches, such as potatoessweet potatoes, or tapioca.
