Location: Sevilla, Spain

MapAfter taking the second on the right we walked by quite a few restaurants and the thought of some tapas was too strong to go passed without venturing into one of them. The one we chose, "Belmonte" had the heads of 8 losers from the Plaza de Toros! Bloody huge they were! After some sizzling garlic prawns and a fine glass of wine we continued on our way to find the Tourist Office. This took us around the Cathedral AND it is gigantic!

Anyway we found the tourist office and were given a map and asked where we came from by the woman more intent on surfing the net than giving us any meaningful info - and that was it!

Walking back to our hotel we were approached by a bloke on a bicycle who happened to be an Aussie (who's lived here 13 years and married 2 Spaniards - not at the same time - and is currently single and a sole tourist operator) He sold us discounted entry to the "famous" El Patio Sevillano Flamence night spot for the 9.30pm show and a couple of 48 hour Green Hop On-Hop Off Bus tickets. He gave us some good tips about what were "must sees" and tips generally about Sevilla. Paul also gave me his phone number in case we need any more help during our stay.

So it was back to our digs for a siesta and shower and off to the flamence show.
