Sevilla night time prettiness.

Sevilla night time prettiness.

We got back at about 10pm, which is the perfect time for a Spanish dinner!

We went to this lovely little place called Extraverde, and shared the tasting menu  plus a main of orange/fish goodness.  Highly recommended!

This was a transit town on the way back to Sevilla.  There was this awesome face-shaped rock that I had to get a photo of.

… it was a rather pretty-ish lagoon, but those damn flamingoes were hard to get a photo of.  But we persevered.  And almost missed the last bus home doing so!

Where, you ask?  Here!  Which is supposed to be gazillions and gazillions of flamingoes in their natural habitat.
(Yes, we did think it was a whole lot closer than 8 hours)

This was an epic, epic journey.  
We woke up at ridiculous o’clock to catch a 7:45am bus that wasn’t there, and then trekked to the train station only to be told the next train was at 11:30am.
Finally, after an 8-hour (yes, 8 hours) trip, we were here!  Well, a couple of kilometres away from here!

That night was flamenco!  We went to Casa de la Memoria for 15 Euros each and it was seriously good.  Like, so-good-there-was-a-Spanish-audience-member-with-tears-streaming-down-his-face-good.

Onwards to Sevilla!

We had a pretty cruisy walk around the city, the highlight of which was this church.  We both felt that seeing it from the outside was enough and didn’t part with our Euros to see the insides.

And some final garden shots…

More prettiness.

Some nice tile work - though not as cool as in Portugal.

Hands down though, the absolute best thing about this place was the maze.  Because who doesn’t love mazes?

Also liked the tiny tile detailing in the brickwork.

This view was also pretty awesome.
