Metropol-Parasol-23

In Seville we went to the Metropol Parasol market. We bought 5kg of oranges and mandarins because Seville oranges are famous for their lovely taste. I also had a frozen yoghurt with caramel sauce, fruit and other treats. Mmmm

Plaza Espagna is huge and beautiful but beware of pickpockets. It’s beside a magnificent park with amazing trees and beautiful and unusual ducks. A part of Star Wars was filmed there.

We found a Geocache not far from Plaza Espagna. It was a small container with money of different countries. It’s the first time I found one in a city. It was exciting.

People gave me (Francois and Ivonne) a camera. I have to take 40 photos in November and post the camera to their friend. She gets 12 cameras from people all over Europe and is going to make a special picture with all the photos.

Mum and dad had a cup of coffee in a posh hotel called Alfonso XIII so they could see the inside. We went to a bar and had some tapas later on. And we saw the cathedral at night. And we got a bit lost.

In Cordoba there’s a massive mosque called the Mezquita. It was pretty. It was decorated with carvings. At 8.30am every morning you can get in for free. It is more than 1000 years old, older than my grampa. The first picture is how they water all the orange trees.

In 1576 the horseriding school in Cordoba opened to train the royal horses. My mum and I went to see them doing a show. It was spectacular. It was 10 euros for my ticket. I used my holiday money to get in. It was better than the football match.
