Lunch with Musician-Dudes (an excellent pastime)

This is a quick sketch I did today in Ketchikan, Alaska. (Kasa had an…unprecedented reaction to being drawn.) Don, to his right, is leaving in two days, so the four of us went on a wildlife tour, then ate lunch at the New York Hotel. (I wholeheartedly recommend their coffee, and their salmon panini with lemon, capers, red onions and greens!)
Off the subject: When picking a tour in port, keep in mind that most of the tours are aimed at ship guests, specifically, old people who can’t walk. We stepped off the ship and saw posters for a “wildlife tour,” showing pictures of rainforests, eagles, and bears. Their flyer mentioned that they also show you downtown Ketchikan and a totem pole collection. I should’ve asked how the two-hour tour was distributed. I knew we were in trouble when we piled into a 15-person van, which drove five blocks and promptly let us off for our first stop. We were in the van, or getting in and out of the van, most of the time. We did get to see several eagles by the roadside, and the totem poles were cool, but anyone who wants a vigorous walk through Alaskan forest had better do some research first.

    Oh My God – he’s completely adorable! Loved the sketch, made me want to be back on the ship (although I’ve never NOT wanted to be back on the ship since we left!). You will laugh that it took me a while to figure out that I had to click on the title to actually see the comic.

    What does “Kasa” stand for – first name – last name?

    Hey Mom! Kasa is short for “Tsukasa” (Japanese, and sounds like “su casa”), though apparently he turned into “Touks” while I wasn’t looking. Everyone on the ship says Hi!
