I get to Sevilla yesterday at 8pm and I dont have a room. I find out everything is booked because of the world famous Feria de Sevilla. Who knew, wish they would pubicize this a little more for the average American. I finally find a place, and run out to eat. The tapas experience is very cool here... one place the guy at the bar keeps track of your orders with chalk on the table right in front of you. I have 1 tortilla espanola, 1 cana de something (slice of beef between bread) and 2 beers. Two is nothing, they're like shot glasses... pathetic, but good taste.
Today, crisis #2 as I run out of clothes and all of the laundry places are closed.... guess why? The Feria de Sevilla is to blame again. No clothes so I have to buy some underwear and get my first souveneir t-shirt which will keep me going for a couple of days when this Feria is finally over. Is anything open here except for the bars??? I kid.
So I think I will find out what this dreaded Feria is all about. Time to go. BTW, this is the best looking city at night, and yes I do remember I saw Paris at night. The people get dressed up fancy like for this Feria, they will have to deal with me in a T-shirt.
Some pics of my stay so far in Sevilla. One more day here and i'm off to Arcos de la Frontera. Meeting tomorrow at 12PM.
