Rolling back the years

I took a wonderful trip down memory lane today with five friends I met at Trinity College of Music during my student years. Several of us had been in touch over the twenty plus years since we left college but the final catalyst for us meeting up was when we all found each other on Facebook. We gathered at the deli around the corner from the old Trinity building (the college has now moved from central London to Greenwich) where we often had lunch during our student days. Despite the couple of decades since we were last together none of us had changed a bit and it was just like we'd seen each other last week. After a leisurely lunch the lady at reception in the our old college building (which is now the School of Economic Science) kindly allowed us in to look around and we all agreed that it seemed smaller than we remembered - very odd considering we all went there as fully grown adults! Finally we ended up in what used to be the college pub, just down the road where we continued catching up on all the news and planned a date for our next get together.

Will, Thomasina, Karen, Vicky and Suzi outside Paul Rothe's deli in Marylebone Lane. Amazingly the deli was exactly as we remembered it from twenty years ago and even the staff were the same!

The day wouldn't have been complete without a group selfie! Thanks to Suzi for her photographic skills getting this one!

I enjoyed this post and your write up.
Did you guys ever have PB meet ups in the site? This is something I hope to do once this launch stuff is out of the way.
