The Colombo Swimming Club was not only my favorite hangout, but was the hangout of many of my friends. Every Friday afternoon at my school we would gather around and ask each other “where to tonight”? It was always the same answer. The Colombo Swimming Club of course. The Colombo Swimming Club was our place to relax and get away from the parents. We could drink a coke by the swimming pool and get burned in the sun. Occasionally we would use the library but it was usually a hideaway for meeting that boy or girl. The famous snooker table is still here where the “elders” would constantly get in trouble for smoking over the table. It was so dark in here that you could sneak in a few kisses with that boy or girl. In the outdoor dinning area our favorite food was chips (french fries) with salt and vinegar. We constantly had to swat the crows to keep them from eating our food. Those were the days.
