Cordoba! Cordoba!

For some reason, Cordoba (about 40 minutes away from where I live) has never appealed to me. Never "a must see city". But after visiting it twice last week, I take it all back.





The city has a strong mix of religious backgrounds that is evident in all its buildings. Above are pictures of the "Mezquita," or Mosque, that is also mixed with a Cathedral... Yep.
It's a beautiful building, one of the most memorable of all the cathedrals I have seen in Spain.




These past few weeks I've also been lucky enough to get to know these two girls :) Jessica and Lydia.
 We meet up every Monday for a chat; that is a mix of Spanish, English, and Spanglish, but it always a laugh and they really are sweet. 
They decided to show me Cordoba, so thats how this trip came about.




Tetería. A tea shop. 
But the most comfortable, cool, tea shop I've ever been in. 


We rounded off the day eating tapas here. It was lovely.
I tried boquerones en vinagre (anchovies... Probably a good thing I didn't know what they were!) and drank tinto con limon to my hearts content.

A really nice place, that I can finally add to the list of places I've visited while on my Year Abroad :)
