last evening in Sevilla

Santa Cruz, Sevilla, November 2019, canon, Sylvie GE

I had given up on  the idea of ​​seeing an authentic flamenco show, but  just before we left, a small bar in the neighbourhood (not recommended by tripadvisor, like that of the photo) has a poster about  a flamenco evening that seemed unpretentious. The evening was memorable! the audience was essentially from the neighbourhood   (we were the only tourists). We only saw the first part in songs and guitar and  I do not know if the artists who were there were virtuosos, but the audience did not fail to mark their appreciation with lots of  olés! The emotion was at the rendezvous again. I did not bring my camera. I could have taken some pictures with the phone, but I preferred to taste each moment of this evening, a little too short, but which will be part of some of my treasured moments in 2019.

TWM and I climbed to the top of this tower which is part of the Sevilla Cathedral, no gym needed today. You can see the whole city (rather grey on the day of our visit). Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world, the Seville Cathedral, built over several centuries, has everything to impress the visitor. As for me, although I see the architectural splendor of the place, I feel crushed by it. I prefer to get lost in the streets of the old town, to smell the tapas and to look at the magnificent Spanish craftsmanship in the shop windows. I have never seen so many cafes, bars and restaurants as in Seville. Life is mostly outside despite the cold. There will  be some "tapas" stops and some glasses of Spanish wine in the coming days.

LG et moi sommes montés tout en haut de cette tour faisant partie de la cathédrale de Seville, pas besoin de gym aujourd’hui. On y voit toute la ville (plutôt ennuagée le jour de notre visite). Considérée par beaucoup comme l’une des plus belles cathédrales au monde, la cathédrale de Seville, dont la construction s’est échelonnée sur plusieurs siècles a tout ce qu’il faut pour impressionner le visiteur. Quant à moi, bien que je voie la splendeur architecturale de l’endroit, je m’y sens écrasée.  Je préfère me perdre dans les petites rues de la vieille vieille ville, sentir l’odeur des tapas et regarder dans les vitrines le travail magnifique des artisans. Je n’ai jamais vu autant de cafés, de bars et de restaurants qu’à Séville. La vie se passe surtout à l’extérieur, bien qu’il fasse un peu froid. Il y aura sans doute quelques arrêts « tapas » et quelques verres de vin espagnol dans les jours qui viennent.
