The kids used to hate going to Europe. They wanted to stay home and have sleepovers all summer long instead of hanging out in strange places where people ride in underground trains and speak in strange languages. One thing they always did was keep journals where they drew pictures of things they’d seen and write about the trip and how much they missed home.
It’s one of my favorite drawings because it is so thorough. The sun above the rain clouds, the kid in the car, the advertisements in the Metro station (the woman’s head below the Metropolitain sign is an ad that was pasted to the walls) as well as the variety of people in the metro cars. The ones holding the poles crack me up.
