Spain - Seville

I recently got back from a week long trip to Spain.
I was visiting a friend from back home who's studying flamenco in Granada.
We met up in Seville and spent two nights with her friend, who was a wonderful host and excellent tour guide, before moving on to Granada.
It was my first time in Spain, and I loved it!

The architecture in Seville is really beautiful and the houses are so cute and colourful.
The streets were lined with blossoming Seville orange trees, which were not only pretty, but also smelled amazing.
I had my first taste of tapas, which were delicious! And, a Spanish-style Menu del Dia, which was really good, but sooo filling - 3 courses is too much for lunch, no wonder things close down between 2:00 and 5:00.
I also saw a flamenco show. It was just a singer and a guitarist (flamenco doesn't always have to have a dancer), and was really good. Flamenco guitar is really impressive!

Here are some of my pictures from Seville:
