Seville- Day 11

Our most leisurely day in Seville began with a bus ride to the city’s center where we went shopping near the Cathedral. We tried to avoid major chains so we could get to the local boutiques.  There appeared to be a number of first communions happening so the courtyard was flooded with little girls in white dresses.  After a day of hitting the streets we went to a genuine Spanish soccer game (Seville F.C. vs. Valencia). It was a great way to experience the culture and learn new Spanish curse words. Seville won, so I’ll take credit for that.

 

The shopping area was covered by tarps that kept the streets cooler.

The neighborhood around the Cathedral had several children's boutiques that specialized in first communion dresses.
