Flag of Spain  , Andalusia,
Sunday, December 19, 2010

We were little too intimidated to drive into Sevilla, as it is the capital of Andalucia, so we chose to go to the next town over, Utrera, and catch the train in instead. The afternoon in Utrera was fairly dismal, with a grand finale being a chaotic gale of rain that sent us running home. Making the most of the complete saturation, Joel then washed Bigwig in the rain. Much to the amusement of the locals.
That night while parked next to the train station there was an all night drunken fiesta going down, apparently in the underpass walkway beneath the train lines. It kept Joel up most the night. But Jena, in her wisdom wore her ear plugs. She didn't even realize there was a party! Even despite the hours of yelling, screaming and singing.

In the morning we dragged ourselves to the station, through the sad remains of the party and hopped on the train into Sevilla.a
It was another bright and cheery city, full of colour and life. We really like Spanish cities. They are always alive and vibrant. Sevilla has some cool buildings as you would imagine, but they are probably best known for their Flaminco culture and their famous bull ring (where they murder the bull mind you!).
We firstly walked to the Plaza del Espania, or Spain square, which is a vast semi circular ring punctuated by fantastic towers, colourful ceramic tiles and an awesome little water canal. We ate lunch there and watched the tourists.

The greater city was fun to explore. Little alleys as you’d expect from the medieval sector, but they were loaded with people drinking and laughing in the siesta streets.
As we were there we were reminded back to home of our friends 'the Savilles’ whom the name was supposedly taken. So we made good fun of finding them the most appropriate gimmicky gift.
