PANORAMAS: Two views of The Plaza de Espana

And then we were in Sevilla. It was a quick stopover of just a few days. We had tickets to a few basketball games at the FIBA World Basketball Tournament and plans to see Flamenco. There were walks through the maze which is the old town and a visit to the Plaza de Espana. It was hot and the AC in our hotel was inoperative for most of our stay. Sevilla is NOT a good place to be without AC. The cool temps, waiting for us in London, were looking quite nice.
