Today was our second day in Sevilla, which means that we go to Cadis tomorrow, which means were gonna be on the BEACH!!!!
but any way, today we got to sleep in late and then go on a 'river cruise' which consisted of one pleasant hour of floating on a spanish river similar to the Guad.  minus the lack of excitement and history (the oldest bridge we saw was built in the '60's), the boat ride was a nice rest and a good change in contrast to the daily cathedral and mosque visits. after siesta, which was an awesome tanning sesh btw, we all headed over to a tiny flamenco show/bar and we were able to watch several talented dancers and singers of all ages dance flamenco.  After the Flamenco exhibition, the group went over to our new favorite restaurant, Du Plex and it was awesome!
So all in all today was a very much needed restful day 
now were off to the beach!

Today we got to sleep in late!!The Flamenco dancers were so intense but the lighting was so funky with the mirrors that the shots i got were not that great.  but the girls were so sweet and patient with us making them pose and re-pose for the attempt of a perfect shot.
Tomorrow we all get to go to a bull arena and watch a real
 professional torredor chooses the next bull for an upcoming bull fight out of a herd of wild bulls...which is gonna be sweet!
