More SPAIN stuff, with FULL-COLOUR PICTURES!!!

parrots of the caribbean
Parrots just fly around freely in certain parts of Seville. How fucking mad is that?! And how cool?

Columbus column
They were flying around near this column, a memorial to Christopher Columbus. I guess it sort of seems appropriate.

head
I think Red missed the point when I said a wanted a little head one evening...

the Mezquita
The Mezquita, formerly a mosque but with a Catholic church built inside it, is a truly breathtaking building in the town of Córdoba. The interior is filled with these amazing columns and striped arches. There are some 850 of them.

hotel room
This is me pointing up at our hotel room in Granada, where we stayed for one night to visit the Alhambra. Lovely hotel; big keyring (see Red's post, if you haven't already).

Olé!
We went to see some damn cool flamenco, too.

the AsteRed beast
Us two, on our last day in Seville, still smiling, despite knowing we had work to come home to.

Snowb: Parrots! I mean, who knew?!

Martha: I think I'm probably done with the pictures for now. Got to move on and get with the real world and its issues, I suppose.
:-(

Suze: We'd have to chop you up to get you into our small cases, but if that's okay with you, you're more than welcome!

_z.: Blogging has really brought out the budding photographers in us, funnily enough. We used to take pics so rarely before. Now we have a reason!
