STROLLING ON A RIVER
In the meantime, I'm trying to get into the habit of taking a good healthy walk regularly, at a fast clip. Thursday, I walked along the water. More than two miles (3.5 km) in less than a half hour, and that included two quick pauses for photos. The walk was invigorating and I discovered a bit more of the city that I hadn't yet explored. I'll have to build this into my new schedule, as well.

I walked past the Olympic Stadium,which is across the river, actually between two branches of the river (the Canal de Alfonso XIII and the Guadalquivir River), on the island of La Cartuja. Olympic Stadium from Expo 92 sits on La Cartuja and the Alamillo Bridge takes you there. The bridge, completed in 1992, is another wonderful opportunity to contrast the old and the new in Sevilla.
|ROWING ON A RIVER.|
It was a glorious afternoon and I saw a crew team out practicing. Seeing that crew speed by was an inspiration, but I think I'll stick to walking. Unlike Tina Turner, since leaving my (good?) job in the city, I usually prefer to take things nice... and... easy.
I wonder if it's time for my siesta.
