My final day in Rio was spent hanging out in a cafe with a group of local urban sketchers and a few of the remaining visitors. Along with the locals with have Luxembourg, Canada, Singapore/UK, USA. I was very happy to have a chance to visit the Santa Teresa area again! (If I ever get back to Rio I would spend a lot of time in this neighbourhood sketching on the streets)
But before the cafe visit – I had the big job (especially with very low energy levels) of packing. I couldn’t resist recording the joys of different power adapters and varying voltage everywhere we went in Brazil.
My energy levels were low…but still I attempted a sketch of the full view. In some ways I think it is not complete…but I am not touching it – being a more real record of the moment to leave it as it was on the day.
Leaving Rio I was able to do a few very quick sketches… of my last views of Sugarloaf!
Whilst I didn’t get a more complete understanding for the city as I had hoped for (in particular I would have liked to explore Centro) I had a great overall feel of the city.
Looking forward to getting back to Sao Paulo for my last few days….
