1 Night in Seville - 30th March 2008 @ 6:23 pm «   »

Location: Spain : 1 Night in Seville

After another overnight train from Lisbon (seater class) we arrived in Madrid at 9am. We then boarded a fast train (3 hrs) to Seville.

Seville is a lovely town and we wish we could spend more time here. The weather is still awesome (28 degrees)! We found a very nice hostel, Pension Macarena, that is newly refurbished and very cheap with an internet cafe right next door.

Tomorrow morning we are leaving on a 9:30am train to Algericas where we will catch the ferry across to Morocco. We can´t wait!

Sofar we have been very happy with the train service – they all leave on the dot and we´ve had no problems yet. We are still on schedule and we are hoping to keep to it as long as possible.

Thanks again for all your messages, we are loving it!

Living vicariously through you guys, we are sitting here on our stoep drinking a bottle of sauvignon blanc, waiting for the coals to burn down on our braai and imagining all the places that you are seeing, smelling and tasting on your journey.

We’ve just put the Woolies’ sweet and sticky barbeque chicken kebabs on and are talking about the next leg of your trip, Morocco, and how you’ll be retracing the footsteps of Port and Kit in the “Sheltering Sky”. Here’s a great passage from the book that seems to fit well with you guys and what you are doing…

“But because we don’t know, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”

Take it all in. Enjoy it. Savor every moment. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures so the rest of us can see what its like.

The chicken’s almost ready and I’ve just had to chase a mouse out of the kitchen… twice.. cheeky little bugger. The kids are sleeping, the crickets are chirping and for the first time today it is really peaceful. We’re about to tuck into our dinner as you two devour another country. Bon Appetite!

Do you get a discount for doing the Macarena dance at the pension?

sounds lovely so far especially the weather. Still cold here but you can feel it warming up slightly.
Braai weather is coming soon.

when do we get to see some of your pictures?

Liefste J+M, terwyl ek sulke stressvolle dinge doen soos eiendoms ewaluasie besware vorms (moet seker 1 woord wees} in der haas moes kry ,invul en vanoggend in die tou gaan staan en inhandig, sien julle dinge en ervaar nuwe smake en nuwe mense ens ,en dis so great!!!Self darem met ‘n paar vreendes in die tou gesels en saam lag gekry vir al die dinge! Almal se eiendomme is wayout “geewalueer” en gaan natuurlik daarvolgens belas word,daarom nou die vorms om beswaar te maak. Intussen is die petrol weer Woensdag op.Ons gaan nou baie meer vir krag betaal,krag wat ons al minder kry ,en sommer op tye wanneer jy dit nie verwag nie. Gelukkig was Regina hier om die garage oop ta hou sodat ek kon uitkom.En dan dink julle het al die excitement!!!Baie soentjies, Mamma (PE)
