Clermont-Ferrand, France, Day I

It was time to continue my journey and meet with my friend Natacha.

On Tursday I met Mário Linhares, Sara, Pedro and their students at Lisbon airport, and while waiting for the plane we were sketching. Here is mine with some of the students and people passing by.

Later, we tooked our flight to Lyon. Was a nice trip were everyone was enjoying the opportunity to sketch and share the results after that. After we arrived, we went to the center of Lyon by BUS for a couple of hours. This was my sketch.

Then we got in Clermont-Ferrant at night. It was time to continue my journey and meet with my friend Natacha, that was waiting for me and go by car to her home. The rest of day was spend resting at home, dining and having a really nice time with Natacha and her friend talking in french most of the time. Since I just can speck a few words I was just watching trying to understand… anyway was great to get some knowledge: “Le savoir ne pas occuper l’espace”.
