The trip was supposed to be down the Amazon . . . never sold enough spots for it to go.
So while looking for something totally unrelated yesterday, I found an old sketch book. I had started some of the sketches in '98 and the most recent probably in '06. I was supposed to lead a Zoo travel group to Peru and I was getting my "sketching hand" ready on pictures of animals and Peru. I was in my "pencil and paper stump" phase.
Funny how you get busy with the little things (in this case I think it was building a house and moving . . .), you know minor things, and just set something aside and forget all about it. One of the joys of being old and forgetful, I guess.
