We walked on the red line in Sevilla

We made a day trip to Sevilla from Cordoba. I serched about Sevilla very well...of course any other places as well then I won't miss to see sevilla but thought probably we don't need to stay over night there. My detision is make a day trip from Cordoba. We took a bus again. The bus cost is 12.30 euro each for one way. It takes 2 hours.

We take a bus at 8:35,arrived to Sevilla at 10:35.  I think that Sevilla is not so huge town especiay for us,travelers. It's easy to explore the town as some sightseeing points are gathering.  We'd like to go to the bullring here in Sevilla as we skip it at Madrid.

The Maestranza bullring is like a "TripAdvisor"lol
Luckily,there is the Maestranza bullring which was built in 18 century. Since then they still holding bull fighting at there. That day I wear a red dress because I know which color is most beautiful in bullring! We walk about 15 min from the bus station to the Maestranza. The Maestranza has unique face like "Trip advisor"...yes,it look like very old style. I like it though something funny. The enter fee is 8 euro each including an audio tour in Japanese (for me). I actuarly didn't need it but their was no option to avoid it. So now I had to take my bag,camera,iPhone,selfie stick and audio guide...too many stuffs. That's why I didn't like to keep it:(    Well,our bullring tour start time is 11:50. We had to wait about 20min at the entrance.  At 11:50,there are about 20-30 people so we start looking inside of Maestranza.
I stand on a ground at Bullring in red dress
 There are some booth like a museum showing the traditional cloth,past bullfighters pictures,a stuffed bull....etc. Also we visited the ground of bullring!! It was really amazing. The bullring has beautiful circle. The color of ground and the edge color of gallery,the arch of roof at gallery and now I'm standing at the center of bullring in a red dress! That's perfect! haha. We wanted stay as much as long at the ground.  

After we leave the Maestranza,we just sit down at the small park. Then something drop on our body...rain??  NO!!!!! It was a pigeon shit!!!! awwwww Someone just passed near us and they helped us using their water and tissues. They said,they from Portgal and asked us about Japan...but I don't remember what we talked about because too busy to get rid off the shit from my hair,skin,red dress.

Cathedral
.. also my daughter. Oh well,we said it's lucky because in Japan we say "Un" both of luck and shit. Anyway we got "Un"!!! I texed about it to Vipin because I needed to tell someone. Then Vipin said the same thing in Spain too! It makes me feel better as it not said only Japan,here in Spain too!

We keep walking to La Giralda. It's really huge cathedral as I couldn't catch in a fram whole the cathdral. Very worth to visit if I knew more about the Giralda. On this trip I regret one thing is "too much". Serching about the places and sightseeings need more time. So I don't remember well sometimes where I should go also what I felt there. When we back in Japan,we forgot to visit Prad museum and try to remember how was that but it feel like happened 3 month ago.

Plaza de Espana square
.. This is not good and should be respect the place and spent money for that. Yes,this cathedral must be more unforgettable...

We skip Alcazar in Sevilla as it was so crowded. Also being smell of pigeon shit from mysef :( At first it was just grasses smell but no more... We start thinking back Cordoba earlier. But wanted to go to the Plaza de Espana square. It was a bit long way in the hot sun. The Plaza de Espana square is quite lovely place as I saw the photo on internet many times. The building is bsolutly amazing!! I was glad to come here during not much people! I wish I could be there at night time!  Sevilla is like a tourism area I think. Everytings are setting for tourist and making beauty as sightseeing places. For me it's not much fun and curious. I like more local so I love Cordoba very much.

I love Cordoba!
I wanted back there as soon as possible even if I didn't smell pigeon shit at that time.

Our return bus time is 16:15. We had to run a little bit. I left my daughter on the way then needed to buy the bus tickets fast. Before 5 min bus is leaving,we caught our bus. Ah...it was too busy in Sevilla.

After back in hotel,we had shower and washing cloths then went to dinner. Tonight,we choice the different direction for dinner. Before the arcade,there are so many tapas bars! We choose the crowded place. We ordered a few of tapas and the plate which is next table eatting. It was shrimp,look symple and good. We enjoy a lot at last night meal in Cordoba. We're going to Granada tomorrow.
