"There were many things to do in Spain, but not as much as Rome and Paris. My friends and I had a lot of time to lollygag and study. The studying part was too easy, so we had even moooore time to explore and do our own thing. Spain was absolutely beautiful. I regret not bonding with the doves al parque! There really isn't much to write for my time living in Seville, mostly in part because we never stayed sober (with an abundance in cheapness of wine, champagne, beer, tobacco and nothing else to do, what do you expect from me son), so anything that wasn't too important or memorable is now forgotten. Gotta blame the hash too.

Christmas time in Seville is TRULY spectacular. It was like Disney on Ice except it was everywhere throughout the city, especially the center.
We took a trip to Aracena to visit . Too dope! I can't find those pictures that we weren't supposed to take in the cave. Too dope! There's many things that fascinated me in Spain, like taxis coming in form of Mercedes Benz cars (everywhere in Europe honestly) lol. I also got to work on my Spanish much more than ever before. Until next time Spain! Barcelona and Madrid, coming up!"
FROM AN OLD BLOG POST!
Spotlight: The Tomb of Columbus
I have my feelings on Columbus, but that didn't change the shock I had when I found out his tomb existed, and in Sevilla. Had to check it out!
"I couldn't even tell you the names of most of the places I've been to in Seville, besides of course The Cathedral where Christopher Columbus bones supposedly lies (pictures noted below), Plaza de Toros de Ronda (never actually got to see a bullfight though -- still on my list) and the Titanic Exhibition. I do remember the club names though lol (totally unlike me, I stay productive as much as I have fun). But enjoy these pictures! When I say Seville was beautiful, it really was beaaaaautiful. The friendships I embarked on were also unforgettable and I'm glad I met these people I've lived, partied, ate and argued with, wouldn't change a thing. We "fulljoyed" our experience everywhere, no one or nothing ever affected anything. We lived it up to the best of our capability. That's how it should be eryday yo."
"The food. It has always been hard for me to become accustomed to other food from different cultures. My parents raised us strictly on Jamaican food, but recently I've been stepping out and trying new things. I won't say the food in Spain was the best I ever had, but I found foods like paella to be delectably delicious! Of course gelato was everywhere! We pretty much ate at our favorite restaurant (an American restaurant -- I know, we're so bad) Sloppy Joe's the whole time in Spain. They loved us and don't think they will ever forget us lmao. I totally forgot about all of the shenanigans until just now while writing this. I was obsessed with the bagels in Dunkin Donuts and I have witnesses to back me up when I say American stuff is just better in Europe, it's crazy, even the customer service and the restaurants themselves. Coca-Cola was another addiction I had over there!"
Foods to try!
"The nightlife was always entertaining, probably the most entertaining out of the three places I lived while in Europe (Rome is strong competition). I tried hookah for the first time in Spain (pretty rad thing to say) and we discovered the dopest night clubs too close to when we were leaving. We were pissed, but we turnt up any chance we could, even the pregaming. Bandalai and Abril are MUST gos in Seville. Calle Betis was our normal spot, even during the week sometimes. I think it's fair to say we had the most hilarious times on our balconies though. I miss all of that."
