Seville revisited

Seville revisited.

Francesca and I spent 4 day in Seville last week. Francesca had been there with her mother in the 70’s .

I first went in in 1962 when I had signed on board as a cabin boy on Sam Spiegel’s yacht in Southampton with the hope (and success) of getting to work on the location of his film Lawrence of Arabia. I had worked as office boy in his London office for a year. Then in 1992 I had a Showscan theater and film (Doñana National Park) in the Spanish pavilion of  the Seville Expo.

The last two days I attended the 20 Book authors conference on self-publishing. More about that later.
