Changes in Seville…

Capital life and random beauty…

Well, the heavily-armed police who have been out since the Barcelona attacks are gone, but now we suddenly have all these defensive bollards disguised as decorative trees at the entrances to popular tourist spots.

Until the weekend, everywhere I’ve been in Spain has had national police officers with assault rifles standing in the middle of pedestrian areas. Today, the local police are back – sans scary weapons – but new, disguised barriers are in place instead.

Plaza de España

Capital life and random beauty…

Today in Seville. Because of all the terror threats, and the heavily-armed police around now, we got a bit of a shock there today. There was a flamenco dancer performing, as well as people illegally selling fans and trashy souvenirs. The illegal sellers got a tip-off the police were coming and all packed up and bolted.

Because of the sounds of the flamenco dancer’s feet, people panicked when the others started running. It sounded like a terror attack… This is a weird world now.
