Weer thuis - Back home again

Allereerst bedankt voor jullie lieve vakantiewensen; we hebben een paar heerlijke weken in Andalusiƫ doorgebracht en ontzettend veel gezien. In Sevilla vielen we met onze neus in de boter, vorige week was daar nl. de Feria dus ongelooflijk veel dames waren in 'traje de flamenco' gekleed en er reden koetsen met versierde paarden rond. Helemaal het oude Spanje van de 19e eeuw! Dus ja, dat was genieten! Gelukkig was het hier ook mooi qua weer, hopelijk hebben jullie er ook een beetje de lentekriebels gekregen? Helaas belooft het de komende dagen iets minder mooi te worden, ach, dan steken we ons parasolletje toch gewoon op? De kraaltjes langs de rand zijn er met de hand opgenaaid.
I'd like to thank you first for your sweet holiday wishes; we've spent some wonderful weeks in Andalusia (Spain) and saw a great many things. Whilst in Seville we couldn't believe our luck; last week was "Feria", meaning enjoying beautifully dressed ladies in 'traje de flamenco'  and well-clad coachmen driving horse-drawn coaches. It felt like how Spain must have looked like way back in the 19th century! So yes, we did really enjoy ourselves tremendously! Luckily for you the weather was fine here, too, so hopefully you're getting the 'springy feel' as well? Unfortunately the weather will change over the days to come... Oh well, why not just carry our umbrella then? The beads along the brim have been stitched on by hand.
