Try something that you would not normally do and you might just get a pleasant surprise ...
Taking my own advice, I invited my Deputy Safety Manager to come for a drive into Kuwait City and get a bite to eat, oh and a buy a Canon 50mm f1.2 L Series Lens.
As my right hand man in the Safety Team, I could not have asked for a better guy, but what about Sachin the guy outside of work. Well he is married with two children, a boy 14, and a girl 10. The boy wants to be an aeronautical engineer, how cool, maybe one day he will design the next plane that flies around the world ..... in space.
Along the way I just had to grab a shot of this happy worker selling chocolate. A mouth full of braces, and proud of it - the only way to be.
OMG some colour, yes thought I would single out the orange, as it is my favourite colour and I just liked the design. Oh, lens bought and being used for all these photos.
Yes we made it to my wife and my favourite restaurant, Johnny Carino's in Shaab. Starting of with some Italian herb bread and free soup - how good is that.
Sachin ordered the best drink, mango, watermelon and strawberry juice - all layered. So as we worked our way though our main meals I got to know a little more about my right hand man.
Great swimmer, goes for a walk every night (wish I had that dedication, God knows I need it), loves cooking, already owns his dream car, one day would like to own a Bungalow with some land, just finished his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and hoping to do a NEBOSH Diploma and I suggested to study for the American Certified Safety Professional.
So with our meals and drinks finished we headed back to camp with full stomachs and big smiles from a great afternoon together.
Thanks for saying yes to the invitation Sachin, glad you had a good time as did I.
