The pedestrian area at nigt
Left the Estancia around 9.30 am for a short drive to Cordoba, a reasonably large city. Arrived around lunch time and checked into a hostel where we were able to upgrade to a double room with private bathroom. We checked in and went around the corner to buy some lunch from an empanada bakery where the selection would have been excellent had they had all varieties available although cooking was continuous. After a chicken and a vegetarian with ricotta cheese empanada each and a drink, we wandered into town to the Main Square. We had a look at the Cathedral and walked down the pedestrian area and looked at the shops. We then returned to the hostel and had showers and sat around a while and walked back into the centre to find a restaurant for dinner. Ed enjoyed a blue cheese pizza and Jo had a very nice salad with chicken and beansprouts. We walked back to the hostel to sleep. The room was really hot as there was no air conditioning and only a fan which did't really do the trick and the temperature outside didn´t decrease much from the day and Jo was worried about opening the window

Street vendors
due to already being bitten by goodness knows how many mosquitoes. (Luckily - as far as we are aware - this is not a malarial region!)
