Parque de Maria Luisa

After Laura visited yesterday, I decided to take my walk this morning through the Parque de Maria Luisa. I didn't get to hit every feature, but here's few pictures:

 These ceramic post tops are everywhere in Sevilla, parks, churches, buildings:

A statue of Infanta Luisa Fernanda, Duchess of Montpensier:
 Another pic of Triana as I walked home:
I hate that skyscraper, so here's a version with it removed, thanks snapseed:

Ever since we went Malaga to see the first stage of the Vuelta a Espana bike race, we've been in the habit of watching stage highlights each morning. Laura and I were watching this morning's coverage of yesterday's stage and the commentary about Spain really cracked us up. They were cycling through some remote, empty part of Spain. The commentators noted that there weren't many folks out spectating. The noted that having a race in the afternoon here was like having it a 4am. Here's the clip. Probably not as funny to other people, but we laughed:

Supposed to cool off dramatically here tomorrow. Looking forward to it.
