Cordoba




Cordoba is a great city. The old Mezquita (Mosque in Spanish) is quite amazing (picture with striped arches), Raphael is the guardian of the city and statues are at almost every entrance. The large Plaza de la Corredera has a daily covered market, as well as small flea market stores and cafes.
I just had a wonderful session at the Hammam - the Arab-style thermal baths - and ran into a woman I had met last year in Barcelona. Quite amazing that we would be in Cordoba and the Baths at the exact same time - not just a small world, but miniscule. The baths are run by the same company as the baths in Granada. Both are wonderful and a good deal with 1.5 hours in the baths and a 15-minute massage for 32 euros - unbeatable if you ask me. Off to Sevilla tomorrow for more explorations.

which opsrey pack do you use? the 2100 or 2300 cubic inch? the new aura women's pack? is that the green pack you had in pdx for your back? (not the front pack)? just wanting to know the most comfortable with great carrying capacity.
spain sounds awesome-esp the baths right about now!
miss you!
