I gave myself the task of choosing 25 photos to represent Seville. It was hard to choose because it's so vibrant and fascinating. Here's what I came up with.
Sugary treats are available in fancy stores like this
Everyone has cell phones, and lots have scooters
Tile work on an old store front
Visiting the market is an everyday event
Never did find out what this religious parade was about.
The tourist scene by the Cathedral with horse and carriage
Sevillianos love to get dressed up.
Tiled murals are all over the place.
The Sunday flea market
Cafe scene in Triana
An alleyway bar on Sunday afternoon
Children playing as dusk falls
Moorish details on a downtown building
An evening bar with families
Gathering at the Metropol Parasol
Man out for a stroll with his dog.
A 15th C church from the top of the Parasol
Typical narrow street with no cars or parking
Beautiful details on this building...
And this one.
Children play in a pool at the Alcazar
This church is 400 years old, reminds me of Mexican churches.
Flower seller on a pedestrian street
Door detail in the Santa Cruz barrio
Typical tapa bar, this one with mounted heads of bulls.
These photos are taken with the iPad since my camera seems to be unable to download photos to my computer any more. It's a bit more cumbersome than the camera but I've managed to get some nice ones and the lens is not too bad.
Tomorrow is our last day here and we will be sad to leave. We figure we could easily spend a couple months exploring Sevilla--but we would choose to come at a time when it's a bit cooler. Maybe in November or March or April when it's in the 20s rather than the 30s during the day.
