There have been some great lectures about the Amazon that are especially interesting since we will be cruising 600 km up the river in the coming week or so. I have been keeping busy with my watercolor projects. The first comes from the buildings that face the dock in Rio de Janeiro. The graffiti and/or street art is very intriguing and I tried to capture it. The second project is a large shiny artwork of three people in Carnaval in Salvador. Carnaval is huge in Salvador attracting almost 4 million celebrants. Luckily, it was all over when we arrived. This is a museum. The statue caught Ron’s eye so we both took pictures.
One interesting thing… at 11:40 a.m. the other day, we were exactly under the sun. No shadow is cast. Obviously, this is neither Ron nor I. Ron asked a passerby to pose for the no-shadow shot.
