Cordoba, Spain

I've been sick these past few days, caught a really bad flu bug. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the the other day when I went inside my airconditioned room after a jog - wet sweaty shirt and all. Or it's just the fluctuating weather. Or I got it from some passengers in the bus or train who sneeze or cough without covering their noses/mouths. Oh well.

At least I've got time to blog again about my recent Spain trip. I'm backlogged with a few blog posts actually. I've also seen quite a number of movies - The Hangover Part 2, X-men First Class, and Kung Fu Panda 2. This blog really feels like another job altogether sometimes :-P But hey! I'm glad excited to say I hit the 60,000 mark for views! Yeeey! hehe.


On our way to Cordoba from Madrid...


Took a snapshot of this kid at one of the stops to Cordoba :-)


My colleague told me about this and I read it on the paper.... heinous crime about this crazy guy who beheaded a british woman in Tenerife... poor woman... peace to her soul.


Thanks to "Rick Steve's Spain 2011" book we knew what bus to take from the train station.  The bus driver and passengers were also very helpful as they taught us where to get down going to the Mezquita.


First glimpse of Mezquita Cathedral...


El Triunfo was our CHEAPEST hotel in Spain but the only one who had free WI-FI! I highly recommend this hotel!


Waiting for Cinderella...


The Cathedral and former Great Mosque of Córdoba, known by the inhabitants of Córdoba as the Mezquita-Catedral.


Courtyard within the Mezquita grounds, right before entering the Cathedral proper.



Moorish architecture of the praying hall


What's a buddha doing inside the cathedral? hehehe



We kept on walking through the narrow alleys and stumbled upon this shopping district!! Haha what a pleasant surprise!


Entrance to the Roman Bridge at night...


View of the Mezquita from the other end of the Roman Bridge...

Next up, my favorite city in Spain - GRANADA!!! :-)

Thank you for sharing this! Sights and attractions are very good. Knowing about Cordoba's cultural background you will certainly find interesting additional aspects when visiting its great monuments - first of all of course the world-famous Mezquita, the Moorish mosque - and museums.
