I followed instructions and started this one using color blocking. But, I NEED lines.

Benedicte and I started walking toward the Red Light District and, on the way, after reading the menu, we entered Belushi’s. During the meal I noticed a couple at the bar taking pictures of each other and being lovey dovey. While they were conversing and staying relatively still I sketched them. He went downstairs and she passed the time taking multiple selfies in front of various backdrops. She passed our table (the place was pretty empty) and I showed her the sketch. When he returned she brought him over to see it. Both were delighted. Next thing I know he has scooted himself next to me on the bench seat. We discovered they were from Russia. He had his phone out and was explaining and showing me the art of a friend of his. His English was very limited so she soon took his place next to me and explained about the artist a bit clearer. She also told us she was a famous performer in Russia and had been to NYC many times. He took out his phone again, searched, and showed us a video of her performing on a catwalk type of stage before a large audience. They went back to the bar, we finished our meal, took our turns downstairs (we were both independently startled/fooled by the mirror) and, upstairs again, asked for the check.

They had paid our bill!

I left my friends and, following the map, started walking back to the hotel. My feet were dragging. I spotted all these girls on the opposite side of the canal and suddenly felt energized. Look at those legs pointing here and there! I unpacked my stool, sat, and got to work.
