It's always sunny in Seville

Jump to last reply

Just wanted to start another topic about my Spain trip. Am in rainy Seville after having perfect weather throughout my trip.After checking into the hotel, I made my way to the cathedral with only an hour left till closing. Of course, I couldn't buy an audio guide so I had to look at the cathedral without knowing what I was seeing. Saw some beautiful artwork-thought the choir and alter looked liked they were drapped -perhaps in preparation for Sunday. Saw Columbus' tomb and climbed up the funky bell tower-so much easier as a ramp than with steps. It's such a beautiful building that I wish I had more time to see it but with my walking tour and the Alcazar tomorrow and Palm Sunday, I doubt I'll have any more time. Went to some touristy restaurants for tapas that Rick Steves recommends. I think I'll have to go out of the Santa Cruz district as it feels very "touristy" to me. One place was called Bodega something and the other Camela. Both were okay but I had better in Granada. Seville is the only place that I really miss having someone along with me-perhaps because I'm directionally challenged and have gotten lost twice. Perhaps the fact it's the holidays and everyone has family with them makes it worse but I feel a bit out of place-even more so than Madrid or Granada.

Will be seeing my first flamenco tomorrow night at Casa de las Memorias. Let's hope it is good.

Until tomorow
