It was dinner with old classmates and an oppotunity to catch up on a 40-year gap for most as we met up for dinner and our School Matric Reunion last night.
Our classmates are spread across the globe and although we battled to find most, Facebook helped locate some and we managed to enjoy a fantastic evening together as we raked up old memories and chatted about our divergent lives.
