Hiromi Kawakami

In the plane I read a Japanese novel by Hiromi Kawakami: "de tas van de leraar". A lovestory of a woman and her (retired) high school teacher. I am not into romantic novels, but I love the way Japanese novels are written: so full of quiet observations of life and nature. Fantastic. Drew/painted this in the plane, some of the lines are quite wobbly. Gelezen: een Japans boek van Hiromi Kawakami: "de tas van de leraar". Fantastisch boek.

I'm really enjoying these travel sketches, Rene, and the stories that go with them.

Thanks Rob. While travelling ain't always fun, drawing is.
