A little corner of my world

Arriving in Seville was certainly overwhelming to say the least.  Ever since I can remember I had lived in only one city and knew it like the back of my hand.  When driving through Seville after a long journey through three different airports, I thought to myself I am going to get lost everyday here.  At first I thought of this as a negative thing, but in these last few weeks of living here, I find myself urging to get lost.  By getting lost in these streets I’ve found the most amazing small tapas bars, winding back roads, little side shops, and beautiful buildings.

Although getting lost in the city has given me many hidden gems there is always one place that I can count on for a breathtaking view.  The Plaza de España is one of the most incredible pieces of architecture, in my opinion, in Seville.  The massive building is surrounded by a park that you could walk around in for hours.  You’ll see many people laying in the grass taking a snooze, vendors selling little trinkets, and horse-drawn carriages ready to take you for a stroll.  The building its self is inscribed with so much history.  The detailing on the floor, ceiling, and railings could keep you entertained for hours.  Instead of burrowing myself in a coffee shop during the day to focus on my studies, which is what I should be doing, I find myself claiming a spot at the Plaza de España to sit and enjoy what Seville has to offer.
