USK Symposium - Getting There

Last week (was it just last week?) I went to the Urban Sketchers 3rd International Sketching Symposium in Santo Domingo.

First I made a map! I've never done one of these before, but I was inspired by maps that other Symposium attendees had made.

We had to get up at 3:00 AM to get to the airport before security opened.

I packed so light! That was my only suitcase.

I sketched some people in the Atlanta airport. The guy on the far right sat right behind us and talked the ENTIRE way to Santo Domingo.

 Obligatory airplane sketch.

I went to the meeting at the Centro Cultural de España for staff and instructors because I am on the staff! After that I desperately needed a nap because of the whole getting-up-at-3:00-AM thing.

We went to the Portrait Party at Quintana, but got there late and it was packed! We just needed to eat, though, so we went to a restaurant on the Plaza de España called Harry's where I accidentally ordered a steak. It was delicious.
