I've been playing squash the last couple of weekends with a group of people my friend John introduced me to. They are a great bunch. We have a Google group on the web aptly named Squash On Tap. We play squash on Saturday mornings at the Defence Club and when we're done, we sit together for a drink and some conversation.
Most people go for beer while I get myself a soft drink. Most of the people in the group work for foreign governmental organisations. They are people who have been to many countries so conversation is very interesting.
I'm not a great orator so I mostly listen. Today's conversation topics turned to American politics and the world financial crisis. I was out of my depth because I don't understand politics at all and the only economics I know is how much money is currently in my wallet. It was educational and I guess I need to do some reading.
Today is bright and sunny so I took my bicycle there and back. Since I started playing with these guys, my Saturday mornings are a lot more enjoyable. It beats sitting at home and watching DVDs.
