Bistrot Mosaico Aeropuerto

While awaiting my plane in the Mexico City Distrito Federal Airport, I grabbed a quick bite of lunch at an interior bistro. The place was empty for the most part as it was early. I had the time and the space to spread out, complete some notes and order a cafe and a small plate. While waiting for the food, I took out my sketchbook and started taking in the scene. I liked the dark wood which contrasted the white clothes, plates and walls for a feel of elegance.
As I was doodling away, people started to come in for the normal meal time and my seclusion was surrendered. I still maintained the sketch as an empty nest even though by the end of the drawing near every chair was occupied.
Sketch book secured, I enjoyed my meal and my cafe (con un poco de leche). Time was near so I covered the check and proceeded on my way to my gate.
Now that I look at it, the chairs remind me of the chair in the Van Gogh painting the Bedroom at Arles. I wonder if that was what started me to give this scene a go.
