Sketchwalk Route 2 Jalan McDougall

Last weekend, we had our Sketchwalk Route 2 at Jalan McDougall.  This stretch of road was named after the late Bishop Francis McDougall, who was a surgeon and priest who came with the first Anglican mission to Kuching, back in 1847.  There are still a few rows of old shophouses and businesses along this road.  Some had been converted to budget hotel, hostels, travel agencies, restaurants and cafes, while others maintained their old businesses, like barbershop, law offices, motorcycle repairshop, kopitiam, etc.  

We had one of the biggest turn out for this Sketchwalk with over 20 sketchers.  Most of the photos were taken by Jee Foong.  At the end of our sketch outing, the owners of The Junk, a famous restaurant & bar in town, near where we were sketching, treated our sketchers to pizza and refreshment on the house.  Twas a fantastic sketch outing, with good weather and amazing company.
