After settling in, we had a little siesta, and then went out in the late afternoon. We walked to the Plaza Neuva, which was less than 5 minutes away, and then some streets around it where there was plenty of shopping, These were also the popular streets for the evening Paseo (walking about) for the people, no cars were allowed on these streets. We saw many stores where beautiful Flamenco dresses were on display (we would find out later that this was the best place in Spain for Flamenco dresses), women and girls were in stores trying them on, I found out from talking to some of them that they were buying the dresses for the April Fair l which is happening in a few weeks.
We went back to the hotel for dinner, the restaurant of the same name in the hotel was one of the best places to eat in Seville, and their tasting menu was superb. The price was not cheap (around 100 euros for the two of us), but definitely worth it. I think we had the reservation at 9:30pm, and finished around 11pm! A late dinner was great, since I had read about the impromptu flamenco dancing in bars throughout the old town after midnight, and wanted to see if we can find some local bars where this happens. We crossed the Isabel II bridge and went into the Triana area on the other side of the river Guadalquivir, in one of the bars mentioned in the Rick Steve's book, the "Lo Neustro", it was quite lively, and we went inside to see if there was dancing going on.
