Flying Home, Going Home – 13 February 2017

13 febIt was really one of those ‘all good things must come to an end’ days when nobody wants to actually mention the departure, but you can see it’s uppermost in everybody’s mind.  So here I am sitting in a chair in a metal tube travelling at 592mph 39,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.  I’ve just finished watching the confusing Dr Strange and the still funny Monty Python and the Holy Grail after rejecting the reworked Ghostbusters.  Why do they think they can improve on the classics?  In TT (that’s Trini TIme) it’s just gone midnight, so I’m really writing this the next day, but this is my blog and I’ll call it the 13th.

The holiday is done now, but what a holiday it was.  We saw amazing things, we did amazing things, things we would never have dreamed of a few years ago.  Now it’s just the long slog home.

Earlier today M&J took us to a shopping mall, and it was interesting seeing the variety of shops there, but to be honest, shops in malls are shops in malls wherever you are in the world.

The traffic was really heavy for our drive to the airport and I wondered for a while if the polis had set up a roadblock where they checked a random selection of cars, but it turned out to be just a slow day on the freeway and we made good time once the volume of traffic reduced further out of Port of Spain.

I got today’s sketch done at the airport, Piarco.  It’s a mixture of perspective

and a couple of folk.  I must try to sketch more folk.  I keep falling back on perspective and buildings to get me out of trouble, but if I don’t start pushing the envelope, I won’t progress.  Must try harder.  Will post the pictures when I have time.
