Obviously no photos of the absolutely gorgeous dress that she's ordered, you'll have to wait until next September to see those, but just a few general photos of Sevilla. It was another gorgeous day, the temperature was 26C all day and there were so many tourists about wearing shorts that you'd have thought it was a summers day and not November!!!
I didn't enhance the colours at all, the sky really is that blue!
The lady shoppers!! Left to right: Rosario (Virginia's grandmother), Virginia, yours truly looking fat, and Mari Carmen (Virginia's mum):
From the car window:
Sevilla has some beautiful architecture:
The horse 'taxis', which take tourists around the city, are very popular as a mode of transport!
The Gothic cathedral of Seville, which is the biggest Gothic Cathedral in the world and the third biggest church in the world. Construction on the cathedral began in 1402 and continued until 1506. The remains of Christopher Columbus are entombed in the cathedral.
Below, the Giralda tower, which is a bell tower of the cathedral, is 104.1 metres (343 feet) tall and was originally built as a minaret during the Moorish period, with a Renaissance style top subsequently added by Spaniards. Construction began in 1184 and were completed on 10th March 1198. If you're interested, more information can be found on the internet!
Virginia on the left with her friend Elena, a lovely girl who is going to be one of the bridesmaids. Brides don't usually have bridesmaids here in Spain but Virginia is bringing some British traditions into her Spanish wedding!
Elena, on the right, loves to dress as a 'goth'. When asked if she preferred any particular colour for her dress I thought she might suggest black....fortunately she said "please, any colour BUT pink!!"
The envelope contains the receipt for the deposit from the wedding dress store!!!
One of the entrances to the cathedral. It actually has fifteen doors on its four facades!
The 'turrets' of the cathedral:
I believe the building below is actually just a very attractive apartment block!
Well I hope you've enjoyed this very very small tour of central Sevilla, here in Andalucia.
I hope everyone has a lovely week!
