My voyage towards a new Tiki beverage takes me to Spain. I’m looking for the orange Tiki, Sunset Beach flavor, and it’s not hiding on the beach as expected, but in one of the most beautiful cities of the world. Before I reach my destination I must sail along the shore of western Africa. From the Ivory Coast I set off for the waters of Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Guinea–Bissau, then Senegal and Gambia and Senegal again as I pass by the famous Dakar. Next I see only the sea and the deserted coast of Mauritania and Morocco. I pass by the Gibraltar, but I will visit the Pillars of Hercules in the next adventure. Now I head north to the Gulf of Cadiz.
I reach the confluence of the Rio Guadalquivir River and I sail slowly on my raft upstream to Seville. The trip on the river is 100 kilometers long and it’s not easy to pass, but fresh water always delights me. I tie my raft a couple of hundred meters away from my target. I arrive just in time for the sunset. After a few steps on solid ground I can scent the smell of oranges. I’m walking through Maria Luisa Park and all of a sudden on the Plaza de España a fantastic semicircular structure appears in front of me. The orange color of the facade is even more intense due to the reflection of the sun setting. I’m walking on the paved square and approaching a canal. Under one of the bridges one Tiki awaits me, the Tiki I have thought about since I left Africa. The mixture of red orange and grapefruit make the whole sight surreal. Thoughts race into my mind. I must sit on the stairs of the bridge. I indulge myself into the color and flavor.
