|The map of our route.|
Valencia is a beautiful city. The architectural details throughout the city are amazing. Anything from door knockers to drain pipes to lamp posts to balconies and so much more have intricate designs. On September 24th we ventured into the El Mercat neighborhood to explore on foot. We began our day in the Plaza de la Virgin which is only fitting as we love this square. We walked for a couple of hours through the maze of streets. We stopped for a tasty treat snack in the El Mercado. We enjoyed the famous street art as we wandered as well.
|Liam decided to sit on a park bench in the shade to get some alone time and people watch perhaps?!|
|We looked at many churches from the outside as most were only open for religious services.|
|The street art is more than just graffiti here. As you can see in the pictures, it truly is art.|
|Resting near El Mercado after our yummy snack.|
|Plaza Redonda is a round square that is set up perfectly for markets and vendors selling goods.|

Once home, Amelie drew the masterpiece pictured below. What is it you ask? It is me riding my bike with her in the bike seat (we were always biking partners). The sun is shining, but there is some hot wind blowing. I loved this so much that I just had to share!
