1162 – Rainy day

Before coming to TCI this time around I bought some galoshes…or what the packet says are “stylish rainshoe covers”. Stylish they are not – I look like an idiot with black plastic bags on my feet. However they did work when it rained heavily the other day and I had to almost wade into work – the paths and roads round here flood very quickly. Crossing the road is like fording a river. I also wore my big green raincoat…and it was so sweaty I think I got wetter than I would have if I’d walked in the rain. So that was my trip to and from work last Wednesday!

1159 – My hat

Here is an evening sketch in my apartment – and of course my hat on a coat hook in the background. The walls are actually all a nondescript cream colour, but when the light is right…well my imagination takes over.

1157 – Evening entertainment

Sometimes when you get home from work, the only way to relax is a cold beer…for me, along with that comes yet another drawing of a beer bottle (I had finished the beer by the time I drew this). This beer is called “I soon reach” – according to the label this is a reference to Turks and Caicos island time – meaning when you are expecting to meet someone, chase them up and they say this, they could be just around the corner or just setting sail from another island en route to you!

1153 – Change of location

On the weekend I discovered that the WiFi in the Airbnb apartment I am renting is ten times better in the bedroom (it’s pretty hopeless in all the other rooms). Unfortunately there is no desk in that room…so I decided to make use of the ironing board! Here is a sketch of my set up for evening and weekend working.
