London 1

The George Robey. A pub in Finsbury Park. North London.
...Right across the street from the Islamic Centre.

I used to go to the ROBEY on Sunday afternoons when there was jazz.
It's been closed for I don't know how long and they seem to be doing something with it.
...We'll see.

"It's been closed for I don't know how long and they seem to be doing something with it."
Almost certainly something cheap and awful and appalling and tasteless.

Sie erinnern mich an die Küste.

Elliot,
I'm plum out of appallment and my taste buds are addled.
There's probably a preservation order on the facade. (That's the blue splodge in the middle.)

Chenguin,
Es Ist ein Vergnügen, von Ihnen zu hören, und Sie von der Küste zu erinnern.

Danke, Limbolo.
Sie sprechen Deutsches sehr gut, mein Freund.

Guten Abend Chenguin,
Bedenke ich es meine Pflicht als ein Ausländer, den Eingeborenen Vergnügen zu geben.

Limbolo your facility with languages is astounding, although I should know better than being surprised.
By the way is this very loose sketch from memory or have you taken to outdoor laptop sketching?
Cheers.

Ich bin nur ein Sklave zum Computer.

Hoffentlich wird etwas gutes heraus; sonst bleibt uns mindestens dieses Bild...

Cheers.

Meine Fähigkeit soll geschätzt auf Deutsch, nicht so werden?

Boris Hiestand said...
