Summer sketchhhhh

I should've sketched much more when I was in Chiayi...a lazybone like me can't really get what I want and that's the lesson I've learned in the past few months.

The bird was singing while the gradma was washing clothes, humming...I think :D

The "燒仙草" stand has been there forever. My friend said his dad loves this dessert since he(his dad) was a kid.

When I was sketching, it seemed this grandpa had finished cleaning around the complex where he lives as an "everyday duty for the public." He came to me and said, "I just cleaned the ground and now there're branches everywhere again...I really hope the government can send people to trim these trees...Oh, but that way people won't have a nice, cooler place to relax under the big sun during summer..." I laughed XD...
When he was talking I really wanted to talk too but! Since I was still sketching and he was talking in Taiwanese, it was really hard for me to talk in Taiwanese at that moment...(I'm not dumb grandpa! I promise I can totally understand you but my Taiwanese is really bad so...sorry...) ......I did try to talk to him though. He was fun~

Good Afternoon: a grandma was selling some vegies on the road.

Good Evening: Usually stands like this which sell clay oven rolls 燒餅 (I would say more like naan) and scallion pancake 蔥油餅 as breakfast in Taiwan...this stand is very different though, it opens from 5 pm!

On my way to Tainan... on the train.

Believe me, there was a Buddhist nun riding a scooter. The color of her clothes matched her scooter so well...

(↑The one under is my when I'm looking at this Grandma has too many wrinkles, she's putting too much cosmetic on her face like painting a wall, and she's getting ol.....#^%#!??? ("Medic!! Medic~~~!!! We just found a young lady lying on the ground and........"))
