Good morning everyone!  It's Friday morning, and after a very late night last night of flamenco, tapas, and walking through the beautiful city of Sevilla, yesterday, Thursday, May 14, I'm just now posting our adventures from yesterday, seventh day of our Virtual Tour of Spain.  Thursday was marked by a bit of rain off and on all day and the temperatures were in the low 60's.  The night before, Wednesday, we enjoyed our visit to Casa Anselma in Triana.  Well, yesterday, Thursday, we were off to dining, tapas, visit to the Real Alcazar de Sevilla, and the great flamenco program at Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos (photo above).

Orientation Map: Sevilla
Here's Thursday's orientation map, with the Real Alcazar and Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos prominently near the map's center.  With this Google Maps view, use fingers or mouse to navigate. Like we have presented over the past several days, you can navigate by zooming in with the + control on lower right, and then use two fingers to swipe left or right, or up or down to navigate position:

Our Google Street View for Thursday puts us right on the path to Alcazar.

Tech notes about navigating in Google Street Views: When viewing the "Virtual Tour of Spain" daily entries on a phone, you may find that you can get "stuck" within a Google Street View while you are swiping up or down on the page. That's because the Google Street View image is live and responds to your finger swiping. Just swipe up or down on the LEFT or RIGHT MARGINS (outside of the Street View image), and your navigation up or down the page continues normally.

There are some gorgeous YouTube videos of Sevilla. We start with a fabulous artistic overview, and follow with walks through town:

Here's a 360 degree view within the Cathedral at the Plaza del Triunfo, which is just north of Alcazar:

And now, let's eat! Here are great foodie YouTube videos of Tapas and Dining in Sevilla:

OK! Now time to walk off all the cuisine of Sevilla! Let's first wander around the gardens outside Real Alcazar de Sevilla. Use fingers or mouse to navigate forward, drag left or right to change your point of view:

Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos
As our Thursday comes to a close, we pull out the tickets we bought Wednesday for our flamenco performance at Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos, right off of the Plaza Santa Cruz. Here are three excellent YouTube videos of the performances at Los Gallos:

And now we wrap up our evening at Los Gallos:

That's our DAY SEVEN!  Enjoy your evening! Friday (today! as we post!) we are off to our weekend in Granada and the gorgeous Alhambra!
