The Giant Poppy – the reason for the trip. In French it’s Le Grand Coquellicot.

We depart…. Waiting on the tarmac at AKL Airport. Bound for Paris.

Paris! Cafe Bar du Bresil.

Sitting in a Cafe in Arras. Two lovers. Conversation, coffee and cigarettes.

Arras Town Hall

… at the going down of the sun and in the morning WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

The journey home begins. Travelling by train (TGV) from Arras to Paris. Sketching at 280 km per hour!
