Back from South America!

 Our 3-week tour took us across southeastern Brazil and Peru to stunning landscapes and cultural sites, as well as to iconic works of landscape architecture by Roberto Burle-Marx, one of the true Renaissance men of the 20th century.  I'll be posting a number of sketches from the trip in the coming days, as I scramble to prepare for next week's Urban Sketching Symposium in Santo Domingo...
This, I'm told, is a Kombi van.  These mobile vendors were ubiquitous across southeastern Brazil.  I was  particularly taken with the happy coconut drinks on the top of this one.
Capturing the lively street life in Lima, Peru...this is the amazing municipal building, across the street from Kennedy Park, which seems to be a center of Lima's public life.
