A Greek Lunch

A Year End Lunch, the Greek Way
- 29 November 2013 -

East Rand Mall Greek Restaurant

It was that time of the year again where we all joined for a corporate festive lunch. This time we went to a Greek restaurant in the East Rand. I have a strange feeling that the East Rand was selected due it's proximity to Sifiso's house. I'm still waiting for the day that we have a lunch in Pretoria, but the chances are small.

We arrived in drips and drabs.... I have never been to the mall before so knowing where to go was a problem, but I came right. However it appears that the rest of our crowd also got a bit lost.

The gathering this year was a bit bigger than previous year. This time we had all the guys from India join, including Karen, and some other contractors working on our project. It was good to have everybody together in a more social environment.

Although the idea is to be social and leave a bit of work behind, the stress of the work was evident with some people continuing to discuss the problems on the project, but a couple of drinks later the group was smiling and laughing.

For most of contractors this was their last day at work so it was fitting that the lunch was scheduled for this day.

A greek setting is a different menu, but this being South Africa most people stuck to the red meat and chicken with the exception of the India crowd who decided to go for a veg platter  as a starter. But I think it is clear that the Indians don't like the greek style veggies, they failed to eat 90% of the plate.

Slowly some of the group started going home, starting with Shirley.... but the party animals stuck around. Sifiso left for supposedly "15 minutes", or at least that is what he promised. It's more like 30 minutes.... He had to get his kids to their swimming lessons, but seeing that he was settling the bill, he had to be the last to leave.

I eventually succumbed to my urges to take some "different" photos.

Some people were now getting back into deep discussions about work while others messed around and laughed.
