Our last day in Seville was a pretty long one.  We started off visiting the old Jewish Quarter with it´s old architecture and narrow winding streets.  There we came across "Pilates House" a 16th century noblemans house which amazingly is still used lived in by the family today.  It´s filled with incredible stone and marble statues, oil paintings and has beautiful gardens filled with exotic flowers, orange trees and dead pigeons. Incredibly there was also a painting of Rosa´s mother, who had a beard and one breast in the centre of her chest. (Una broma Bonita!)

After that we had some Paella for lunch, walked along the river, had a coffee and watched the sun go down.  That night Zach and I went to a Flamenco show.  It took us an hour to find the place, but it was worth it because we met a couple of Spanish girls from the North who were also here on holiday.  They agreed Sevilla was beautiful, but insisted the Basque area was much better and that we should visit someday. :-) 

So that was it for Seville.  An amazing city, full of culture, history, beautiful friendly people, and inpossible to navigate streets.  Serisouly, I´ve been to places like Siem Reap in Cambodia,  Rurrenabaque in Bolivia, Kanchanaburi in Thailand... all these small crazy places, and I´ve NEVER had so much trouble finding my way about than I have here in Seville.  It´s like Hogwarts Castle, the streets move about at night, so when you wake up in the morning everything´s changed and you can´t find your fecking car.
