Waiting

A contour drawing of a young girl waiting for a ride home. I added the watercolor when I got home.

Most people in Bali drive motorbikes. After two months of thinking they were all crazy, we bought one. I spent many hours studying every model of bike and scooter on the road. We thought we might like a vintage Vespa, but they sound like a lawnmower in need of a tune-up. We ended up with a Piaggio Fly—sooooooooo cool!
