Afghanistan 8

Pencil 5"x8"

We ate out twice at this restaurant. Not in the city centre; walking distance in fact. The seating is arranged on a low platform on which is a low table just high enough to stretch out your legs underneath. Not only is it comfortable and casual, because you can lean back on the cushions, but it is also works with the local culture. You have taken off your shoes before getting on the platform, and since it would be insulting to show the soles of your feet towards anyone, your feet are neatly concealed by the table. Anyway, while we were waiting for the food I did this sketch in what was a sort of outdoor tent made out of matting. It took away the heat and the glaring sun. Ideal.
