Well this is boring…

The City of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain is a pretty remarkable place.

City of the Arts and Sciences

 

However, I managed to find one monotonous exhibit that you desperately want to see, but can’t stand to watch.

I waited for about 15 minutes, filmed half of that, and edited it down to 2-3 minutes.

You will just want to see how it ends.

City of the Arts and Sciences At Night

I was just flipping through some (I mean hundred really) of my photographs from my trip to Valencia, Spain.

This photo of the City of the Arts and Sciences at night has to be on of the best architecture photos I’ve taken. The quality of the photograph isn’t great or anything, but the composition and its aesthetics, like the water reflection, is why I like it so much.

Several City of the Arts and Sciences buildings.

Flamenco in Valencia

Having spent a few days in Valencia for a trip outside London, booking a flamenco show was at the top of my list. Of course paella was way up there too, and I did have three paella dinners. 

One night was spent at La Bulería where you could get a combo of a drink, dinner, and/or tapas with a flamenco show. My traveling mate and I booked a tapas plate and a show.

The atmosphere was great and the talent and food was too. Mind you that food is served at 9 p.m. while the show doesn’t start until 11 p.m. This is simply the way they do things in Spain. Expect few restaurants to be open between 4 and 8 p.m.

Anyways, here’s a small video clip of the talent. Enjoy.
