George’s Postcard Note: It seemed every small park we found was built around these big old banyan trees. This one was in a park near our local Recoleta post office, so I walked by it often. One evening on my way back to the apartment the mood of the “tree” caught my attention and I stopped to draw. This late afternoon after work the families were out around the tree playing with their children. The tree’s shade was in stark contrast to the setting sun beyond the surrounding streets.
