Saturday 10th February - Flamenco and Churrios
We decided last night that we would go to the other side of the river to La Taberna a known bar that has no entry fee but people go there to sing and dance.
This was the wine I had last night with the meal apparently only 1.70 Euros . It is a natural wine no chemicals or fining in.
Later that day I get dressed in my Christmas shirt and Tie, I am an Englishman in Seville.
I send a picture to Maria so she will recognise me!
The Bridge over the river an accordionist plays Italian Music!
Lovers lock a padlock onto the railings, which gets cleared off every week!
The players were selling a CD so you had to buy it.
Inside the bar nothing was going on but the barman says there will be some guitarists and some singing but no Flamenco tonight!
Maria wanted to go but I said look its an unusual place lets just sit down and have a drink and if the singing starts and is no good we can go, it was about 9.30 p.m
We waste some time taking selfies
Then the guitarists start to play... Apparently Maria thinks they are good so we get a tapas more wine and stay.
The Bar fills up and in between 10 minute rests, people change, this family were from Lisbon Portugal.
There was a tall man who we found out later was a local poet who kept wanting to sing. At one point in the evening he falls over, and then gets up and proceeds to sing about it. Brilliant.
I loved this bar great local atmosphere, loved the way the local ladies just chatted away as two ladies got up and dance the Flamenco with castanets as well.
After the show finishes at about 2.30 am! We stagger back across the bridge to eat Chocolatey Churrios
We then get a taxi ride home which cost just over 20 Euros but it was worth it.
