From inside the Mezquita (mosque) courtyard.
After Las Alpujarras, I took a very early bus (5:30 from Trevelez) back to Granada. At the bus station I decided to check out Cordoba for no particular reason. I like the name. It is unbelievably hot here... 100 today. I was going to choose Hostal Baghdad for accommodations (it´s like stepping into Persia: it has a wonderful patio and the atmosphere is relaxing, soft, even meditative) , but it doesn´t have air conditioning, so I opted for another clean but flavorless HI hostal instead.

Tonight is some kind of enormous all-night Flamenco festival, so that should be interesting. Tomorrow I am likely off to Seville or Tarifa, and then to Tangier.

Cordoba is apparently known for its elaborate patios that allow people to entertain and escape the heat.

Yet someone else who chose to pray to the wrong God.
