If you’re new to my blog, welcome, and if you are a returning reader, thank you! I am honored that my writing is being read by so many people now!!
Yesterday, Kayla and I had the chance to adventure around Seville again! Although the past couple days have been raining (…their rainiest season in 25 years, just my luck right?) not even a drizzly day could stop Seville from being filled with life. Most of our afternoon was spent venturing up and down streets in the shopping area of “El Centro”. We did a lot of “window shopping” since we are trying to save our money to travel!
I took a lot of pictures of the quaint scenery on these little roads, as well as window displays, so you could get a feel for Sevillian life! (In some pictures you can see my blue rain jacket reflecting in the glass!)
The older church in Seville. It became too small for the growing population in Seville, so they built a giant cathedral to accommodate the city!
Orange trees are EVERYWHERE in Seville!!
Futbol (soccer) is their second religion in Spain.
And of course Flamenco! So many shops filled with gorgeous Flamenco and Feria dresses!
So many shoe stores in Seville!! They never end!
And when you see a place like this….you have to go in and check it out. (It smelled so good when you walked by, we couldn’t resist!)
And this actually happened twice…so we went inside this place too…
Only in Spain do you turn a street corner and discover a beautiful church!!
These people seem to be all around the city selling lottery cards!
Miguel Cervantes, author of Don Quiote.
Look what we found!! A little “Taste of America”!!
It’s funny to see these things in a specialty store here, when they would normally be found in our grocery stores! (Trust me, their grocery stores are nothing like ours!!)
Very steep prices for American food products here!! (We didn’t buy anything at the “Taste of America” store…it was definitely a tease though!)
The best T-shirt I’ve seen so far here!! I do Spanish yoga all the time!!!!
I hope this post gave you an idea of what shops are like in Spain….great fashion, delicious sweets, religious figurines and beautiful flamenco fans…all intertwined with windy cobblestone streets and open plazas!
Now I am off to a weekend in Africa!! Packed the essentials: Camera, water, snacks and toilet paper! So excited to ride a camel! (I promise to take lots of pictures!) Morocco here I come!!
Feliz Dia de San Valentin! xoxo
