Hola Spain! Part 8 - Final (Finally!)

Yes! This is the last part to my random pics of Spain. Phew! If I were to post all my pics here at the rate I am doing it, it'll probably last me for the next couple of years. Ha ha ha....Enjoy, and have a good weekend (or what's left of it...LOL)!
Plaza De Espana in Seville - this place was used (though digitally modified) as a setting for Naboo in Star Wars II - Attack Of The Clones!
A lovely courtyard within Seville
A shot of Alhambra in Granada
This was one of the best cake I've ever tasted during one of my coffee time in Granada - it's a whisky torte ice cream cake! I hope I got it right as I ordered pointing to a pic in the menu and I saw whisky torte written next to it.
Cute "tricycles", for the tired or lazy tourist who wants a view of town the easy way. Hee hee....
Souvenirs for sale in one of the many small lanes in Cordoba. Note the Mesquita souvenirs on the wall, below is a photo of the place itself when we took a tour there.
The famous La Mezquita Cathedral in Cordoba
The lovely tiles souvenirs sold in Cordoba. They also have mirrors, clocks or just plain decorative tiles.
And I shall end with one of my favourite photos from Spain. Came across this street performer in this lovely area in Cordoba. I like looking at this shot, serene and peaceful. Most houses in this area have little flower pots on the exterior wall of their houses. How pretty!

At first I got confused with the blogger new kid on the blog. Thought it was Judy cos she used that name when she first started her blog before she changed to Dr ve Thru. Now she is the old kid on the blog and a "grandmother!"

Judy : You should go, Spain really is beautiful. Ok, ok, will think about being a pro photographer when I upgrade my camera :o)

Big Boys Oven : Was sorely disappointed, none of the Spanish men I saw was half Mr Spain who won the Mr World 2007 title. Ha ha ha...

NKOTB : Glad you like the pics :o)

Wonda : Is okay, the natural sunshine and rain guarantee to help those with no green fingers! Yes, he's playing the guitar for some money. Judy no longer NKOTB lo....LOL..

Jun : I'm so sorry, I'm not someone who knows a lot about cakes except to eat them! LOL, maybe FBB, Allan, Nigel and boo_licious can help. Oh, there's definitely ice cream in there :o)

mama bok : I'm so happy to hear that you would want to go again. There is really so much to see in Spain!

The last pic is really lovely. I am from Vietnam and Spain is so far but hope that I will have a little house with little flower pots like your pic. Thanks for posting.
