Before you ask, no I didn’t slip on wax. But this was Semana Santa related as I was distracted by looking at a procession and didn’t see the gaping hole in the pavement. Down I went, not only respraining my left ankle but also spraining my right foot (!!!). Or at least I think – and hope – they are “just” sprains and that nothing is broken. The pain is frankly unbearable if I try to stand so the only “walking” I’m doing is to and from the bathroom (can’t avoid that). My friend Juan has offered to come over and drive me to the hospital but I honestly don’t think I can even make it down the stairs. Fuck.
Or more specifically, signs of Easter in Sevilla. “Wax warning” signs put up around the city along procession routes. I’ve never seen these before so I’m guessing the city has been sued due to slippery wax related accidents…
In case you don’t know, penitents carry long candles during the Semana Santa processions that drip wax (cera) along the way. For a couple of weeks after Easter shoes and car tires make squeaky noises.
Palm Sunday. Here we go again…
… with a glass of wine and a cat or two on my lap. Heaven.
This week’s Friday Foto Finder challenge is “game”.
Here’s a photo taken a few years ago at the old “casa az” at Christmas time.
The table was set up with Christmas games: chess, backgammon and scrabble.

It was a crazy busy day, starting off with catching an earlyish train to Jerez for a massive wine tasting – about 50 wineries from across Spain were showing off their best. This was followed by this fabulous lunch you can see up there, after which I had a bit of time to catch up with my friend Sylvie who happened to be in town for the day before I had to race back to the station to get the train back home (made it with 7 minutes to spare). As soon as I got back to Sevilla I took the tram to the centre in time to pick up my tapas tour clients for the evening. Phew! I’d like to write more about the wine tasting event on Azahar in Sevilla. Perhaps next week…?
