Scheveningen, Netherlands
Scheveningen is one of the eight districts of The Hague, as well as a sub-district of that city. It is a modern seaside resort with a long sandy beach, an esplanade, a pier and a lighthouse. The beach is popular for water sports.

The early settlers may have been Anglo Saxon or possible Scandinavian. Fishing was the main source of food and income. There were a series of storms which devastated Scheveningen beginning in 1470 destroying half the houses and only church. It wasn't until 1904 that a deep water harbor was constructed thereby protecting marine life and the town. The picturesque village attracted many Dutch artists over the centuries and fisherman catching their lot in the North Sea.

Seville, Spain
Seville, Spain is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville. It is located on the plain of the Guadalquivir River. It is said that some cities have looks, others have personalities. Sevillanos have both.

Muslim Spain became the most powerful of the small kingdoms into which Islamic Spain split after Cordoba collapsed in 1031. In the 12th century a strict Islamic sect from Morocco took over Muslim Spain and made Seville capital of their whole realm. International trade increased immensely followed by massive building of Renaissance and Baroque building were erected due to Seville's new wealth. Two waves of the plague essentially eradicated most of the population and the Spanish Civil War in 1936 ruined Seville's economy. It wasn't until the 1980's when Spain elected a new prime minister and the Expo of 1992 (and associated infrastructure) brought millions of visitor. Seville's economic base today is a mix of tourism, commerce, technology and manufacturing industry.
