Hi furiends! For dis Unity in Diversity World Cup post, mom is going to try to talk about Spain without mentioning their furry handsome goalie. I seriously doubt that she can make it through a whole post, but I'm willing to give her a chance.
(Do you see the soccer ball in dis picture??)
Mom visited Southern Spain in 2005, and her First Impression was that of beauty, and it stayed wiff her the whole trip. The colorful buildings, the cascading flowers, the food, the people... it was truly a feast fur the eyes.
There was a lime tree going outside mom and dad's hotel room. Mom thought that was just the neatest thing:
The food in Spain was just incredible! Mom wishes she had taken some pictures of it, but either didn't have the camera at the time, or just didn't think about it. But there was ham that was cured in the fresh mountain air for a year and then sliced paper thin. Fresh seafood and vegetables. The best steak she ever had, and Paella from a small restaurant that had to be ordered the night before so the restaurant owner could go to the sea the next morning and catch the seafood himself, and take it to his mother, who prepared it fresh for the evening meal. OMD!!!
Dis is the famous Cathedral of Seville. It was breathtaking inside and out!
Just a fun street scene. Mom loves horses...
Mom said she noticed a great sense of pride among the people, pride in who they were, what they were doing, and pride in their heritage and country. Fashion also seemed to be furry important in Spain, because most of the people looked like they had stepped out of a fashion magazine.
Mom said that people brought their dogs into the cafe's and restaurants!! The dogs were furry well behaved. That sounds like a furry wonderful place to me!!
Mom didn't go here, but she had to take a picture. She says dis is fur my kitteh friends:
**waves at Madi**
Do you know what that dark mountain in the distance is?? It's Africa! Dis picture was taken in Gibraltar, and Africa was only 17 miles away. Mom waved at it, and said she would visit someday...
Boomer has her paws crossed fur Spain, who are playing in the quarterfinals on Saturday:
Rah. Go Spain.
Don't stare too long into those eyes... she may turn you to stone. Or at least bop you on the head... BOL!
And here is just a weird picture of me running. I don't know why mom wants to show it, but whatever, mom...
