[By Samantha Zaza in Rabat, Morocco] I haven't posted in a long, long time. The transition to my new home in Morocco has been challenging, though things seem to be looking a bit better now. I miss Turkey, and I've developed an anxiety whenever I hear its name mentioned in the news. I haven't been sketching much, though when I do, I've been reluctant to scan the results. So, this is my reentry into sketching world, with a collection of impressions from a holiday I took to Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands about five months ago. Better late than never, right?
I left my worries behind in the Maghreb while hiking, birdwatching, and drawing in Gáldar's Cueva Pintada museum. I sipped on wine and beer in cafés— something I miss in Morocco— and enjoyed being far, far away from work.
It was a short but needed break, and I did more sketching in those three days than in months.
