A coffee in Amsterdam II (168)
22/12/2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands 🇳🇱 .
You may remember that coffee in Amsterdam I had before going to Leiden [link to 61]. It was the same trip where I drew a selfie and had a Christmas night with a happy ending [link to 81] 👀
Today’s drawing is another chapter of that trip. It’s actually the first drawing I made after stepping on the streets of Amsterdam. I remember being very tired, but the cold and fresh atmosphere were perfect for a walk in the city…
I went to the hostel, left my backpack and got lost in the narrow alleys of Amsterdam. Around midday I got hungry, and I popped into a café for a piece of cake and a hot coffee. I felt super cosy and inspired, so I started to sketch what I was seeing…
The result was this very light sketch that, in my eyes, represents that quiet pre-Christmas atmosphere, the whole world entering a limbo to travel back home… At the end of that journey, I sent this drawing as a gift to a Spanish friend, A.
But tell me dear reader…
What do you prefer to eat when you are cold?
Do you like to send and receive postcards?
Good night 🍰☕️
