Last week I was back in Seville, but the main picture is from a few 
weeks ago, it was just on the same roll of film. I was amused by all 
these prohibitions at the entrance to the Saldanha shopping mall in 
Lisbon--this is the kind of stuff you expect in Switzerland or Germany, 
but not in Portugal:

The rest of the images are honestly taken this week, and in Seville. 
What I love most about Spain is not the food, or the climate, or the 
language, but the people. So the next two images are of my 
friends/co-workers. We usually go out for lunch to a tapas place and 
order a bunch of "half-portions" (media raciones). Here is Miguel 
studying the menu:
...and here are Miguel and Sonia devouring the fruits of that research. 
It is customary to just have the plates spread around the table and pick 
at them at will:

Another Seville image, two people run into each other on the street and 
have a conversation:

Seville wants to be a modern city, and part of that is having a metro. 
So for the next two years most of downtown is being dug up, providing a 
bit of a spectacle for the locals. But the city really does need better 
public transport.

The metro construction has consequences, though. Apparently not 
everything was planned correctly, since some of the surrounding 
sidewalks and buildings are visibly affected, somewhat worryingly. This 
building is right next to my office:
