Wow, what a tour and tour-de-force! I especially like Petra and Tug, but the whole series is great.

Thank you Andre, Alitogata & Matthew.
As you'll know, sketching is a special way of making new friends and breaking down barriers no matter where you are.
Perhaps we could introduce sketching as part of the world peace process :-) Interestingly there are sketching groups in both Tel Aviv and Ramallah

Thanks Andre & Alitogata, I believe the brightness is due to my Tombows.

This time in the top right corner of New South Wales in Australia. Near a place called Kingscliff. I was attending a conference last week.

* Flight over - we were delayed a bit with bird strike
* Tropical Fruit World - towed through the plantations by tractors - great vistas
* Tropical fruit - several hundred varieties
* Aussie Bush Band
* This guy gave an excellent rendition of 'Piano Man'.
