This was our most leisurely day yet. We slept in until we felt like getting up, enjoyed breakfast in the hotel then ventured out for a walk. We made our way to the river, Guadilquivir. It was a gorgeous, sunny day in the low-mid 70's. We made our way back towards the Barrio to get lost in the tangled streets and do some shopping. We stopped for a quick refreshing glass of gazpacho before siesta. Dinner was at the Italian place again. Here are some shots of our day.

Today we board the high speed Ave train back to Barcelona. A 5.5 hour trip with a train speed average around 185 mph. It's so wonderful to just hand the driving off to someone else.
Our last day is tomorrow and we will go to Sagrada Familia. This will be Dean's first time to see it and I'm excited to see how far construction has come in the last 2 years.
Until then ...
