I’ve always enjoyed watching old photos/videos of familiar places, and to get a glimpse of how places used to look like. This must be a quite rare color clip from 1927, of a growing London. Really surprising that there were so many motor vehicles on the streets back then, and also that things looks so familiar even thought it’s almost 100 years back in time.
At the end of the clip you’ll se how this place looked back then.
So, this is Sunday evening. The end of a week, that in many ways feels like a month! The week started of hectically with all the work that needed to be done, before getting up from bed at 3:30 Tuesday morning to jump on a plane to London for the ICE fair, so Tuesday night was a night out, and do I need to tell that my eyes were both pointing at my nose?!
Wednesday went by pretty quick. Had some nice discussions during the day and in the evening I had a great dinner together with some new acquaintances and a colleague of mine. Back at the hotel I found out that an old school friend from Piteå also was in London. 15 minutes later we had a beer and shared some laughs at a restaurant and talked to a French woman in her 60:s about life in general, and the history of Europe. A friendly conversation that made some sudden U-turns at the end when she started to repeat “I wanna kill, I wanna kill”…. 🙂 so, we jumped in a taxi and finished the night down at Picadilly.
Thursday afternoon I went back to Stockholm and had a full night of sleep. Friday morning I had some really interesting business meetings before I went on a conference with me and my colleagues company, DevCode. We stayed at a conference center called Skepparholmen which I really recommend! Great service, great view and excellent food! In the evening we spent two hours in the outside pool, surrounded by snow and all the boats that enters / leaves Stockholm. Magic! A good conference that I think can be important for the future.
Suddenly, it was Sunday. A week that went by as fast as it can and at the same time feels like it was an eternity.
To get back on track I spent the whole Sunday walking in the spring like weather in the woods in Stockholm. Don’t think that are any better ways to slow down and fill up the reserves again.
I hope you all had a great week too, and best wishes for the new week.
