UDS Sevilla Photos

So I just remembered that I have a treasure-trove of photos that I took while I was in Spain at UDS-Sevilla that I never shared with you all. Let’s take a look, shall we?The Football/Soccer Stadium Near the Hotel
So this is the first view I got when I started getting settled into the hotel room for the evening. What a view! These are just some apartments and condos with a football/soccer stadium in the near distance, but it’s just a very pretty view. Lots of colors in the trees and pants, and those apartment buildings just look fantastic. I thought it was interesting that even the units above the second floor still have bars on the windows. I bet this place gets pretty rowdy after a match.
GardensSo these are the gardens outside the hotel. It’s a shame that I still never got to walk in them. They did a fantastic job of putting these gardens together, I really missed out there. The back gardens by the pool and the pool-house bar weren’t half-bad either. This hotel was well and truly impressive.
PaintersSo after I got settled in the hotel, I was introduced to the two greatest fellas in all of Ubuntudom: John Riddel and Anthony Mercatante. We went about walking with a really nice South African guy by the name of Will (sorry, can’t remember the full name). We walked through the public square, around a river, and about some other parts of Sevilla. This was the only way I could think of to fight the jet lag. Well, as a midwesterner, this painter really surprised me. I can’t tell you how many films I’ve seen this scene in where there’s some random person painting out in a public square, but it was a real trip to see someone doing it for real.
CathedralPalace EntranceTo the left is the Cathedral outside the Royal Palace, and to the right is the entrance to the Royal Palace of the Spanish Royal Family. I’ve never seen a royal palace or anything like it before. I’ve seen quarters for British soldiers during the American Revolutionary War, but never a palace. This really was a treat.
So I’m going to just show you a bunch of photos from the conference now.
