Day 48-49 of 68 – Sea Days

February 21, 2018 Paul Groves

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.
