#mysevilla: Ali Maravillas

#MySevilla – another week of photos perfect for vicarious living as we continue showing you the city through the eyes of some very cool citizens. Last week you met @debravdorn, and this week we are bringing you another ambassador of the region – @alimaravillas.

Queen of crochet, Alicia is a happy Sevillana who adds even more color to her already colorful city – and other cities throughout Spain – with her “yarn bombing,” a form of urban art that she’s passionate about. You’ll have to tune into our @mimosevilla instagram this week to get a glimpse of it and her lovely crochet designs as Ali takes over our account to show you the city through her eyes. Read on to see what tips she has to share about her city.

* What is your favorite tapa right now?

The cheek (carrillera) with truffled mashed potatoes at Sal Gorda. A delicacy that every person should try – and repeat and repeat and repeat!

* What is your favorite local dish, drink, or product?

I’m crazy about “tejitas,” typical sweets here made with almond paste. These tuile-like cookies are so addictive – once I start, I can’t stop!

* What do you do on a Sunday in Sevilla?

Honestly, I love my home. In Sevilla we are lucky that the sun is everywhere. My house is full of light and on Sundays I do enjoy just staying in. But a perfect Sunday would have to include friends, drinks, and lots of laughs – preferably on one of the many rooftops in the city center.

* Describe Sevilla in three words.

Light, spirit, soul.
