Out on the Town, Seville, Andalusia, Spain

Each evening as we search for a place to dine, we wander down unknown or familiar streets, sometimes lost, sometimes not.  Above, framed by the Metropol Parasol (also known as the mushrooms or the waffles) in central Seville, the golden glow in the distance is a former mosque, now a baroque Roman Catholic church, the Iglesia del Salvador.

It is the largest church in the city after the Cathedral. The current construction began in the 17th century.

A nearby tapas bar is filled with diners at 1030pm - typical late night dining hours in Seville. Dining late actually works out fairly well since my body still thinks it is six hours earlier in my home timezone.

We found a vegan/vegetarian/bio restaurant nearby named surprisingly, Fargo.  Here's the dessert in honor of Amy's birthday! (Yes, it is vegan).

Sunset  viewed through the Iglesia de la Magdalena. The Church of Santa María Magdalena was built in the late 17th century above a medieval church built after the Christian conquest of the city in 1248. From the "newness" of the Parasol, to the "oldness" of churches, Seville has it all.
