"if I could only spend one more night between pool and garden,
in the olive-grooves, a legacy of grandeur,
where turtle doves sing and little birds warble;
in the Zahir, sheltering in a gentle rain,
while the Pleiades wink at us and we wink at them,
and the Zahi with its Sud al-Suud hall, watching us with envy,
because envy is love's constant companion;
it may be easy, it may be difficult;
everything depends upon the will of God"

moments: BBQ lunches at my grandfather's house in seville with family. catching a late night (occasionally funny) flamenco show at Los Gallos (Plaza Santa Cruz 11). Experiencing the local arabic hamam. horse driven carriage rides on the banks of seville. siting in my teeny balcony at the hotel during siestas, eating peaches and taking to my best friend.
