Out my airplane window, somewhere over the U.S.

Out my hotel window, Sevilla, Spain

Room 125, La Boticaria, Sevilla, Spain.

A series of courtyards

Located near Sevilla, Spain, La Boticaria is comprised of a series of porticoed courtyards. It's a building technique brought to Spain by the Moors, who certainly knew how to create a cool, calming environment in the midst of a blazing hot climate like that of the Andalusian plain.
Lovely, too, albeit a bit hard to navigate at first!
