Day 101:  We caught the train down to Seville today and when we arrived we immediately realised that the south of Spain is so hot and would be over 40 degrees for our entire stay there and with no sight of water anywhere was going to be hard.  But we worked out that we would head out in the morning, come back for the hottest part of the day then head back again when it got a bit cooler.

So for the first day we arrived at about 5pm, did the usual walk around our immediate area, found some food for dinner then headed back to the hotel, it was a nice change from the hostel we were just in so just relaxed for the rest of the day.

Day 102:  Today we headed first to the Alcazar of Seville, this place was pretty cool, it was built during the Moorish period through to the Renaissance so they have different parts from each period which made everything look that little bit extra cooler.  Seville is what I originally had pictured Spain to be like and you could really see it when you visit the Alcazar so I would recommended it to anyone.  After the Alcazar we went next door to the Cathedral of St. Mary and also climbed the bell tower, this church was pretty amazing, was above the average of churches that we have seen lately but still very similar.

For the rest of the day we just wondered around the city, had the worst tapas we have had so far for dinner, but they had 1 euro beers so it wasn't a total waste, I think it was a chain restaurant which could explain why.

Day 103:  Today we took a tour of a bull ring since we didn't get to do the one we wanted in Madrid.  This was a special one as they still use it to hold bull fights.  Most of the rest of Spain has made bull fighting illegal and they believe that it will also become illegal through the whole country, they are held every Sunday but there were no bull fights scheduled for all of August.  Not much happened for the rest of the day.
