It is the Roman festival in Beja this weekend, and the city is full of people walking around in peplums. Not only performers, but the locals dress up as well.
Seems like I spent the day drawing this saturday. Museum of Costume and Fashion in the morning, where we had a lot of fun remaking one of the costumes we had drawn with pieces of cloth we had brought from home .
And then I rushed for a drawing session on the other side of town for the open day of the ITQB (institute of chemical and biological technology). The lab sudies genetic traits of plants that makes them for instance more resistant to some diseases.
And now it is monday and I am still recovering from the weekend…
Discovering the amazing variety of weeds
This environmental association challenged the portuguese urban sketchers to draw the spontaneous plants that grow in our cities for their campaign against the use of toxic herbicides to kill them.
I had never noticed them before, but there are plenty of them in my way to work, and of so many kinds.
But it was only a playback theatre performance. For an audience of a few hundred people. Never have I felt so physically tired after a performance.
Anyway, we got really good feedback from the audience so I feel quite content as well.

That’s what my father asked me when I told him I was going to Budapest for a week.
Well, there was the European playback theatre gathering gathering, and besides I had always wanted to see Budapest, the chain bridge, the Danube… So I stayed a few days more after the gathering and I regret not having stayed longer. I feel like my mouth was always gaping open as I wandered the streetsbecause each building was more amazing than the other.
SI was having coffee at the beach yesterday with a friend and his seven year old daughter when another little girl comes over to our table and asks her: do you want to play with me?
And so they played together for the rest of the time we stayed there.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do the same, as adults?
Turned out I was being manipulated
