Hearing the “Clip clop” of horses hooves as they trot the cobbled pathways across the whole of the historical centre - the "Sound of Seville" for me.
Endless Nights of eating and drinking – how do the locals do it? (And could someone PLEASE put that young , screaming child to bed at once!)
The most beautiful Alcazar I have ever seen. Complete, well preserved with stunning gardens creating an oasis in the middle of the city and a place for a romantic stroll, complete with peacocks..
Warm nights walking through the park, home to our Hostal.
River cruise at sunset – water is silver, silence prevails, and the air is fresh.
Walking the Triana district and eating fish by the river
Political contemporary art was far too didactic for my tastes (is it visual art or political commentary??), but timely for Spaniards, considering the student occupation of the main squares across the country.
Trying to find eggs for breakfast –we did on the last day!
Why are there no real tomatoes left in Spain??? (“Tomate” just doesn’t cut it!)
I agree with Ernest Hemmingway that Bull fights are “a wonderful Nightmare”. The colour, the drama and the courage. The way the animal and the human dance together and eye each other off. I know animal rights people have every right to complain, and I was very conflicted about the bulls being killed, whilst respecting the tradition that started this, but there is some magic there, as well.
Barrio Santa Cruz and the Jewish quarter are wonderful places to get lost in.
The best food really can be in the tourist areas. We had the two best Tapas meals outside our hotel!
