Time has flown yet again but finally getting myself settled back into the swing of life (and aiming to catch up on blogging, crafting, learning, and cooking). I always just seem to want to hibernate when the nights are long and dark.
Following on from my earlier post, Day 3 and other procession. This one was in Triana, just on the other side of the river from the city centre. The streets were jam packed and we ended up waiting for ages because we were at the end of the procession, not the beginning. This really gave me a feel of how the city would be during Semana Santa. After it was all over we stayed in Triana for a bit, visiting a lovely little Abaceria, which had the most amazing cheese and jamon.
During the week we took a stroll up to La Cantina at Mercado de Feria for some tasty seafood tapas and on the way popped into Vizcaina for a drink. It’s an old style bar with sawdust on the floor, where your tab is chalked onto the counter. I loved seeing the barrels from Bodegas Hidalgo, as we did the tour when we were in Sanlucar de Barrameda last year (and got an extra drink from the workers’ barrel!).
I love just wandering around soaking up the life of a city. Here are a few images of my favourite random snaps from this trip:
Oh…I almost forgot – I ate percebes for the first time! I had wanted to try them for ages – they were okay but didn’t taste as exciting as they look.
As I’m determined to remain on a roll blogging-wise, I’ll be back tomorrow with my Thursday recipe. Time for some coffee and crochet now.
