The Hostel is on the corner of Congress and Wabash, a well-appointed place, welcoming an international crowd.  It was a party for the guests, a mixer, with a band on one side and that famous caricaturist on the other.  I was set up near a huge mural of the map of the world.  My spot

was right at the tip of Patagonia and from there I drew these diverse faces. Everybody spoke English, of course.  You can try to match the face with a spot on the globe.  Hint: Ireland, Argentina, India, Japan, China, Tibet, Russia, Iran and the US and more. Thank you, Sharday!

Their husbands are executives in an international company and so they move around a bit. They talk about London, Rome or Rio as if these were neighboring suburbs.  Everybody speaks a handful of languages—fluently.  I drew thirteen of these cosmopolitan women, who came from India, Australia, Denmark, Germany, France, Argentina, Belgium, Britain and the Faroe Islands.  I practiced a little French and German on them and asked to hear some Faroese, which sounds a lot like Swedish.    Art, culture, food…pretty good company, I must say.  They were celebrating the birthday of a member, the founder of this ex-pat club.  I drew them all in an hour-and-a-half and then was invited to enjoy some of their fabulous pot-luck.  Thank you, Jackie.  Happy Birthday, Eva!
