As I mentioned in my previous Spanish post, I celebrated a Spanish cuisine day this weekend. I started my day with a typical Spanish breakfast, Pan con Tomate. For Lunch, I went down my memory lane of Spanish meals, and I recalled the awesome Paella that Alphonso (the awesome and the most pleasing person who worked at a nice restaurant) served us in Seville. The restaurant is situated at the old town square, right across the famous Giralda towers. Everything was so fabulous, the warm lighting of the tower, the vibrant street and the lively people singing and dancing till late in the night.
It’s almost a month when we went to Spain for a short vacation. I am still in awe of the beautiful architecture, Casa Batlo, La Pedraro, Sagrada Familia, etc. On the other hand the rustic feel of the southern Spain. The Andalusian region is my favorite, for its rustic and charming. The old European and Mediterranean mix makes it quite a special place. The best place of our trip was Ronda, a Pueblo Blanco (aka White Village). It is a small town built on a gorge with a fertile terrain all around. Calm and serene, beautiful and rustic. Not only the town itself, but the train ride to Ronda and the bus ride on the way back to Seville is something I will cherish for life. Have a look at the picture and you will know why it is so special.
