Sevilla was a fun city.   We stayed at the Hotel Don Paco on Plaza Jeronimo de Cordoba 4 y 5.  There was a
bar next to the hotel and a park across the street.  People in Sevilla like to sing.  Everyone had a great voice,
at least those that sang on the streets next to the hotel.  

The Sevillans' Spanish is very close to that of the Caribbean.  They, too, drop the final S in words.   

It is said that many of the ships that sailed to the "New World" sailed from the port in Sevilla.

Left - In case you wanted to know where cork comes from.  This is a cork tree.  The bark is removed and processed,
then the tree is marked, and will not be touched until the bark grows back.  What does the bark feel like?  Cork.  
Right -
500 Escudos, front and back.
Left - After touring Portugal, we returned to Spain.  In 1992 Sevilla hosted the Expo. Right -  The Alcazar.

April 19, 2020 - I began cleaning out my closets a while back since I decided to rent the small room of my apartment  
to a friend.  I had to shift things around which had been stored in the closets to make space.  In so doing, I decided
to get rid of the many photo albums I had stored in the foyer closet.  Damn, I did not know I had that many photo
albums.  Before shredding the photos/postcards and souvenirs, I looked at them and decided to keep a few.
I will post what I saved and scanned on various pages.   Some photos and postcards may be posted on other
pages.  Everything posted will be as scanned without adjusting the photo for color, clarity, etc.  
What you see is what you get.  Watermark will not be added.  No kallaloo here, just simplicity.

Below are the photos/postcards/souvenirs being added.  Keep in mind, some may be duplicates.
