Best moments do come back again as time ticks.This is what exactly happened when a few of IBM CSC Kenya 8 team members met in London last week. Personally, I knew I would meet my team sometime in the future, but wasn't sure when that would happen. When the opportunity came, not me but my colleagues made it happen! How brilliant can this get!
Ulla-Britt, Heli, Alex and myself had a fun weekend in London, meeting each other after almost 3 years. While staying in Europe, Ulla-Britt, Alex & Heli have met quite often, they flew in to London for the weekend just for me! I felt so privileged and special. Though we have not seen each other for a long while now, as Alex mentioned, we really didn't need the settling-in time. I think this is what life-changing experiences do to people.
Friday evening went in chatting for long hours and a stroll to Victoria for dinner at O Sole Mia! The following day, we set out at 10 to walk through Kensington before we headed to Chalk Farm to join a group for a London walking tour by an ex-homeless person. It was a brilliant 3 hour tour taking us through Primrose and Camden. Post that we headed back to our apartment and called it a day after dinner at an Indian restaurant.
Sunday, we visited Tate Modern, spent about 3 hours there and then halted for lunch. Alex headed to the airport for a flight back home. The three of us, then walked to Trafalgar square before we waved off to Ulla-Britt who was leaving for Stockholm. Heli and myself then stopped by at the Banquetting house, had a high tea at this very pretty looking place before we left for Victoria only to see off each other. Soon, I was on a train back to Lancaster and the much awaited weekend was already a time of the past.
Thinking about it, I feel so good and brings back very very fond memories from Kenya. We did miss a lot of other team members, but atleast we made a start for the tradition to continue. #ibmcsc #csckenya8
