Hi! My name is Zoraida and I'm a literary translator living in Barcelona. I'm amazed by the beautiful sketches I've seen in this blog. I like to draw but I'm totally self-taught, so the symposium workshops will be my very first art lessons. I feel privileged!


The plane tickets are already bought and I just need to book a hotel room. It's always exciting to plan a trip to Lisbon, which is my favorite city in the world. Last summer I stayed there for about two months. This is the view I had from my room at Rua dos Fanqueiros:


 


And this is a sketch I made at the pleasant Praça do Príncipe Real:


 


Looking forward to see you all in Lisbon,


Zoraida
