Old friends in a new environment

Old friends in a new environment

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of meeting up with an ex-colleague (and current friend), Björn Wenngren, and his partner Christina.  Björn was one of the consultants who made a major contribution to the National EIA & SEA Project in Ghana, some years ago.  More about that project in the “Projects” section.  Now they live (at least between travels to various parts of the world) in a suburb of Stockholm called Hammarby Sjöstad, a rather new area, built on a site that had been polluted by industry years ago, but which has been cleaned up.  The suburb was designed with energy efficiency and recycling in mind, putting in place a number of systems before the final designs of buildings were even done.  More about that on their website http://www.hammarbysjostad.se/ (there is an English version).

The picture shows the view from my friends’ living room towards the centre of Stockholm, the view I enjoyed while I also enjoyed the meal prepared by “chef de cuisine” Björn.

Nice to have good friends in such pleasant settings!
