Andalucia: Sevilla

The next morning, we took a train to Sevilla, the capital city of Andalusia region. Out of the 3 places in Andalucia that we went to, this probably was the most relaxing place ever. We didn't have much sight seeing to do because we decided that we wanna ditch all the Christian tourist attractions in Sevilla, which leaved us to nothing. Hehe.

Seperti biasa, we got lost finding the hostel because the hostel's street was so narrow, it didn't appear in the map. After checking in, we quickly went to a cafe to have some churros!


Lepas makan churros terus rasa mual cos I don't really like fried food to begin with and the combination of dipping fried churros into thick hot chocolate just amplified the nauseating feeling. Nak mengelakkan dari buat scene muntah tengah jalan, H bought Minute Maid orange juice for me. Baru rasa lega.

Lepas tu, we just took a stroll in the city and - shopped. I think most of you know that Spain is the birth country to high end street brands such as Zara, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Mango, Massimo Dutti etc. The price of course relatively cheap even when compared to other European countries. For example a Zara top is price at 29 Euro in Spain but it's 35 Euro for the rest of European countries. Sadly I didn't do much shopping except a pair of Mango jeggings that I love to bits but I can't say the same about my husband. He went all the way and got everything that he wanted. Shirt, t-shirt, belt, you named it. Over tau laki mak ni.

That night, we went to watch flamenco dance performance at Tablao El Arenal. The entrance fee is 37 Euro/person with one complimentary drink. You can also choose to have dinner while watching the performance but of course it comes with a higher price.



The performance was superb! My husband being a fan of classical guitar and a classical guitar player himself was in awe with the awesome skills showed by the flamenco guitarists. I was in awe with the dancers, the elaborated & colourful costumes, the skill and the passions. I think the baby was enjoying the performances too that I kinda feel a soft quickening in my belly! Well, or that the music was too loud that s/he was annoyed. Sadly no photographing or recording are allowed but I managed to record a 1-minute video of one of the performances.



5 days in Andalusia were definitely not enough. We wish that we could spend more time to explore other places in Andalusia such as Malaga with its famous Costa del Sol, Almeria or Jaen, the world's capital of olive oil.

Maybe if the timing (and money!) is good, we will come back?

And oh, lastly before I forget, while we were window shopping I found this:

Apa celop tok?!

Tanjat gegerl tau tengok.
