Just another day's work

This is a graphical report commissioned, so to speak. It is part of the application to correspond the USk Symposium that this year is held in Amsterdam. I decided to prove to myself that all stories are worth telling, even the most vulgar.
Like this, just another day's work.


Let's get started. 
The place: a private school in the area of ​​Restelo, Lisbon. The year and month are the current. 
At 10:00 a.m. the faculty room is almost deserted. Classes have already begun. Everything is left to chance: coats, suitcases. Trust in who goes to the room is total. Despite the suspicious character of the drawing ...


11:30 a.m.
3 feet and 2 hands. A part of a whole that consists of 52 hands, as many feet, and still 26 heads - a little monster called class :)


12:00 p.m. 
The open windows of my classroom lead into a green and deserted space bathed at this hour by an immense sun. 
The windows are always open to remember that there are also important things outside the classroom.


1:30 p.m.
Lunch time. My colleague A. takes this time to work. Teacher work is often solitary despite appearances. 
Outside the exclusive neighborhood of Restelo, which owes its name to an (ironically) very prosaic motive.


3:00 p.m.
Gym time. My colleague M. is missing, so I have to replace him. 
All normal - do dentists, surgeons, cooks or lawyers also replace each other when they miss work?


6.30 p.m. 
A wonderful sunset announces another working meeting at the end of the day.


7:20 p.m.
A drawing of a work meeting is like a working meeting - hard to be very diversified.


At 8:00 p.m. the meeting is extended and we are all tired. 
Even the reporter feels exhausted, but happy. Extraordinary, if we look, can always be found in everyday life, as one wrote.
