Cordoba is a city in the southern part of Spain. It has great historical significance, being a major city under Roman rule and later a key Islamic center in Europe during the middle ages before coming under Christian rule. We learned so much about this unique city where Christians, Jews and Muslims have lived together for centuries. My favourite part was the mingling of beautiful architecture and patterns with the extensive use of lush plantings. We decided to fly into Madrid and then hired a car to drive about four hours south. We were grateful that it wasn’t super hot as we had anticipated for our visit. Unusually, it was quite the opposite with scattered rain showers and cool breezes. The norm is not to eat dinner until late at night so we tried to slide into the local lifestyle. This girl likes to get to bed and can’t quite hang with the Spaniards and their late night fun … even when it’s super delicious.
