“The air soft as that of Seville in April, and so fragrant that it was delicious to breathe it.” -Christopher Columbus
Well, that may be, but I didn’t get much soft, sweet sevillano air – it rained almost the whole time I was there! Here are some of my favorite pictures of when the Feria got flooded by crazy rainstorms. It went from a bright, sunny day to one full of clouds, thunder, and lightning.
The Feria-goers fled quickly, running for taxis and buses and seeking shelter in the casetas (the temporary stripy tents set up just for the Feria). I honestly thought the casetas were going to collapse under the pounding rain!
