I didn't sleep too well, since the shock of discovering the beetle hadn't completely faded out. Yet no other creepy creatures turned up so the night passed by relatively well. I showered in a rush this morning though, as you never know what else one might run into in that scary bathroom...

Nothing specific was planned today. Normally we would have spend more time in Triana yesterday and visited the Alcazar now, but since Triana wasn't that special we did all that already. That gave us plenty of time to just hang around the centre of Sevilla. We sat at Plaza del Triunfo for a while, wondering what to go and see, and then we started of for a walk. We came past the Plaza Nueva again, and as it was still cool at the square this time, it was easier to enjoy it. There actually are many great buildings surrounding it, that I hadn't noticed last time, when I was tired from the heat and the walking. Then we passed the Plaza de Torros, which we didn't enter, and cruised some small streets in the area.

Back at the Avenida de la Constitución we found this delicious butchery/bakery/patisserie shop. We intended just to buy some baguettes and go to picnic somewhere, but we couldn't possibly leave without having some of the marvellous cakes and pastry's. They were sweet, heavy but basically haven!!!

On our way to the Prado de San Sebastian, from where the busses to Granada (and other Spanish cities) leave, we passed by a wedding parade. It was fun to watch as the close related family of the bride were all dressed in traditional outfits, and there was a great atmosphere as they walked by singing and chatting. Later on we watched the young couple ride by in a carriage. They as well looked wonderful :)
