Xui is on a trade mission to the new democratic Egypt. Roland Poland is still haunted by black dogs and has been medicated.
He writes to his half-brother Malcolm in Carlisle.
We are staying at a really nice hotel in Alexandria,
called the Montaza Palace.
I have had my Valium and everything is lovelly.
I am watching the rainbow clouds as they drift
across the sky.
I love everybody Malcolm,
Here are the pages in his travel book
We have included a Nile River scene at Aswan, the sphinx and pyramids at Giza and a snap of the Montaza Palace hotel in Alexandria. The black basalt statue is of Anubis, a God of the Dead. Roland Poland just sees him as another black dog that is causing such mayhem in his life. Xui just thinks he is paranoid.
The postcard is from a drawing in a children's colouring book. I have printed the outline and coloured it with Copic Markers and gold metallic pen. The background colour is Pan Pastels.
Thank you for stopping by this week and I do hope you will visit the other travellers (see sidebar for link).
Thank you to Darcy at Art and Soul for organizing this challenge and for allowing us to accompany her on this year long journey.
