A Hot Day in the narrow Streets of Seville

It was a hot day in Seville, in the high 30’s and heading for 40c.  It is then that you understand and appreciate the high and narrow streets that help to provide a little shade and cool. 

A complete contrast to the tourist hotspots of this gloriously colourful and spectacular Andalusian City…

An Andalusian Dawn….

Spanish Coast

Dawn over the Cabo De Gata coastline, the start of what would be another very hot Andalusian day.  I can still feel the heat rising despite a slight breeze from off the sea.

No matter where you are, no matter the weather…

Looking for Shade……

 

Looking-for-Shade

The Plaza de Espana, Seville, Andalusia, Spain

It was a hot day in Seville, the thermometer hovered over 40c.  The magnificent Plaza with its tall buildings trapped the heat.  So for awhile we enjoyed the shade of the canopied entrance.  Always felt sorry for the magnificent Andalusian Horses tirelessly working as scenic taxis.

We lingered, perhaps longer than planned, listening to a rather good Busker…..  playing his Spanish guitar of course….  🙂

Memories are made up of all the small moments of any vacation.

Remembering is as much fun as the journey…but right now…

Reminiscing…..

Plaza de Espana, Seville, Spain

It seems a life time ago since we were strolling around Seville in temperatures of 38.5c and admiring the fabulous architecture of the City.  Even though the temperature was much higher than we are used to it was a dry heat with a gentle breeze and not uncomfortable…though shade was welcome as well the occasional cool drink.

Andalusia is a region of contrasts and I will try to bring you a flavour of this region of Spain over the next week or so.

Meantime its playing catch up with the usual work chores !
