4 days in Tarakan, east borneo, Indonesia

 my job, once again takes me to a trip to Tarakan, this time i go with a group of leadership training to be their health supervisor. The event was take place in Hotel Monaco and several places in Tarakan. From Nunukan we went by a speedboat about 2,5 hrs to Tarakan, then we stay there for 4 days.

 Sketching on a speeding boat is a challenge since the vibration and the minimum level of comfort. But the advantage is the objects are relatively steady so we can explore more from what we see. It definitely helps to sketch better.

 In the hotel many interesting objects to be explored.  Activities in the dining room and the interiors,  challenge sketchers ability to stretch lines as staight as possible. The practice in drawing a line really handy in this situation.
