1st July 2017, Seville
These days that I’ve described are what you would call the bustling and exciting life of a tourist. But the real, actual calming experience to gather the real essence of a country, is to be part of one a.k.a be one to the nation not OF the nation. Ok, in simple terms be a RESIDENT. NO! not like Get a citizenship or something but flow in the same beat as everyone else. And today I decided to do just that.To start off the morning with a hop, skip and a run , me and dad decided to run alongside a
lake River called guada grover… yup, it took almost forever but it had its perks. I discovered this beautiful lighthouse that had a cold air to it. Turns out it used to attract ships with its light and then CHAIN THEM! to get hold of their fortune and riches! It was something like rapunzel’s tower, so pretty and magically hidden yet the inner space was like a death chamber.On the way back we saw castles and an Indian historical archive , it all felt like a walk through history, the next thing left to see were probably kings dressed in robs and huge crowns! To see more of this city’s TODAY side, we went visiting its lovely bakeries, nothing like the scents of a bakery🥐🍰🍮🍩🍶 ! I could go on with the emojis and we also visited the malls , and get this. This city may look like Ancient Rome but in its fashion sense It was 20 DECADES ahead, no kidding. The city looked like an old, wise elegant character but had a smart, straightforward and stylish personality. A little later in the evening we headed to a famous park but ended up discovering a whole different place all by itself , It was like a sweet hidden one with its little pools and pigeons.We then headed to Christopher Columbus’s tomb which later turned out to be his monument. His tomb was inside a place called Alkazar which was closed. A little disappointed though ,it was beautiful nevertheless, with his boat handcrafted in the middle it was like the leaning yet not leaning tower of Spain.
Still strolling on the streets we discovered a place that looked like it had been cut from London and pasted in Seville. With the boats and castles and the wedding season going on, I would call this extremely fairytalistic.( thats probably not a word).
Look at it, its absolutely majestic. It turned out to be the real Parque actually.🤣 AlSo my sister dropped a bag on someone from a floor above, which though was at that time a What?! moment, was pretty hilarious.We came back, I put my earplugs on and ended this day.Then woke up listening. to my favourite song and started dancing. I AM weird but then again, “Things made in the most weirdest of ways are always the most interesting to taste”. Toodlez!
