Somewhere for the weekend?

This house was for sale in a side street of Seville. It made me think of 'A streetcar named Desire' every time we passed it even though it was not like the film location or even representing the same country....I think it was the faded glamour and notions of hot nights and breezes blowing in from wrought iron balconies that entranced me........I would so love to buy it.......sigh.......................




This street art crow (?) down an alleyway always intrigued me too.....loved it.
And the Alcazar was incredibly beautiful and the Cathedral was a sight to behold but my photographs would never do them justice.........so this is a photo of an almond cake/tart that I did do justice to.....slice after slice after slice.

I was already pining for foreign shores... now that it turned into desperation.

The almond cake is key. How funny, my sister does that walk the Camino to lose 24 ibs every year (well that's one of the side effects...)

ALW....the tart was lovely.....ps.gosh I am impressed by your sister.....y'know me and my sister have wanted to do that walk for years but think that we will only be able to do bits of it the older we get? did she film it?
