Yesterday as we approached. Salamanca, we saw what looked like snow capped mountains, but we thought it was a mirage!
Today, in the plains between Merida and Sevilla we saw vast – from horizon to horizon – plantings of olives and vineyards. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen as much land covered with grapevines.
We arrived in Sevilla at about the busiest time – about 2.30 on a Saturday. However, we lucked out by finding a space in subterranean parking garage and walked the narrow, cobbled streets to our Hotel Cervantes (which has parking!)
Sevilla – I had completely forgotten how beautiful and full of life you are!
… and how huge and magnificent the cathedral is!
… and how good the sangria is!
