Greetings from Japan

Hi there, I'm Kumi Matsukawa, a correspondent Tokyo, I work as a freelance illustrator and instructor of watercolor and pastel classes near my place. I'll be in Spain with one friend from Japan and another from Russia. Unfortunately those two girls are not able to attend the symposium ( unlike me) but we'll make the most of this sketch opportunity, exploring Each and every moment, location, occasion.. We'll arrive Barcelona on 8th and after symposium days, we are planning to visit Seville, and Madrid.. This is my second symposium. I first attended the first one.Here you can see my then posts. http://pdx2010.urbansketchers.org/2010/08/my-results-from-urban-color-session.html http://pdx2010.urbansketchers.org/2010/08/my-results-from-urban-line-session.html http://pdx2010.urbansketchers.org/2010/11/three-months-have-past.html I've been preparing my bags, tools, and things to bring and put them in the suitcase, then re arranged things again and again.. Still feeling unrealistic.. Am I going there in two weeks??? lined up sketchers A stairway A slope

Hi Kumi,
It'll be great seeing you again!
I'm going with my wife and our friend (both non sketchers) and so far they planned on seeing Girona and Granada during our sessions. I hope to do some sightseeing after the symposium too.
