Day 160
I cycled across Yarralumla to the American embassy, intending to sketch it but the security fence was so tall and heavy that I couldn't get a good view. So, sitting on their lawn, watched over by two security men, I sketched Parliament House instead. I think it is a fantastic building, rising out of the hill, but still nestled in the trees, awesome but still accessible to the public. 8 km cycle

Always an interesting building and view, one I imagine all Australians would know. Like it and all your other ones done while I was away. I like your idea of doing the various embassy buildings as they are all so different but I suppose some cant be seen easily. Can you see the Japanese one?

What an interesting building. Glad you were able to draw even with the embassy dopes watching.

I'm sure your story of the different buildings is a metaphorical tale.
