Las Setas de Sevilla (Mushrooms of Seville): Six parasols in the form of giant mushrooms, Seville
It was to be the last meal we were to share together this trip. We went to a fancy restaurant, not a tapas bar – where everyone eats. One of my friends ordered fish cheeks and I thought he was joking. I giggled quite a bit until I was informed it is a delicacy and he would be very happy to share some with me. It was indeed very special. Very moist, tender, and sweet . . . I would order a dinner of cheeks again and again.
I also really enjoyed “window shopping” . . . The pastry and bakery shops in Spain are so different from those in the states. There are cakes that look like marble. Some that look like paintings. . . All filled with wonderful tastes. . .
If there were an art contest on the designs used in the foods of Spain, I think every restaurant would be displaying their blue ribbons on the wall.
There are so many more wonderful cities to visit in Spain that I have not written about.
My hope was to share some of my experiences, adventures, and to encourage others to want to have special adventures of their own, and enjoy seeing a few of the places I love.
In exploring Spain, you’ll see monuments reaching for the clouds, and special exhibits in basements in unusual places. And the buildings – such wonderful exteriors and roof statues.
You’ll experience cathedrals and churches in every city with unbelievably beautiful interiors.
Homes turned into museums. Ceilings everywhere are so different – painted, pressed plaster, carved plaster, carved wood, inlaid wood just to name a few. Don’t forget to look up!
Castles, palaces, windmills, and history. Don’t forget the history.
I hope that my stories have inspired you.
Happy travels to you!
