Travel Series: Córdoba

Hey, I’m actually on top of it enough to post on the day of, instead of on the bus two days later! Be proud of me! As I mentioned in my last post (about Seville) we left pretty early this morning and made our way to Córdoba for a quick tour of the Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba, which is essentially a giant mosque that now functions as a cathedral. This place was shockingly beautiful. To get to the cathedral, we had to pass over another Game of Thrones filming location, the Roman bridge. I keep wondering how this country could get more beautiful, and keep having Spain reply “hold my beer”. After our tour of the cathedral, we had a quick lunch before heading for Granada. I had calamari sandwiches with avocado mayo, and they were seriously amazing (I know, you’re probably sick of me saying that, but I can’t help it!)

We arrived in Granada around 5pm with temperatures right around 104. It is hot here. Once we settled our things into our tiny little hostel, we headed out to get some churros with chocolate as a group. Just walking through the streets of this city, I’m shocked by how beautiful it is (seriously, why am I still surprised?) There’s strong Moorish influence that you can see all over this city, especially in the Morroccan quarter that we wandered through tonight. After getting churros, my friends Sarah, Jess, and Alyssa came with me to do a little bit of shopping. It was utterly chaotic, so we didn’t last very long. On our way back, we stopped at a little kebab shop for a quick supper. And now, we’re off to bed, as tomorrow is a very busy day.

Stay tuned for more updates,

xoxo, second sister suzie
