|After another late night we woke up to make the trek to Cordoba, one of the oldest cities in Spain. When we got there it seemed like, as nice as the place was, there was only the same things to do. Get off the bus, walk through the Jewish quarter to the Cathedral/Mosque (which is sometimes separate, sometimes built one on top of each other), and then go through some touristy market of some sort. While Cordoba was no different than the other cities that inside of this Cathedral, a former Mosque was unique. The inside was made of brick and sandstone arches making a ceiling stretching endlessly of red and white arches dimly lit by hanging lamps. It was really spectacular and I wonder what it looked like when it was just a Mosque. I guess I know why the Christians thought they would build on top of the Mosques, but couldn't they just leave it be even if their were know Muslims in the city to use it. Anyway we spent awhile walking around but it was very hot, (over 100 degrees) and our friends were tired from the night before (we almost didn't go to the Cathedral, but I said I was going no matter what, so they ended up coming =) ). So we went back and took it easy since we had to leave for Toledo at 8:00 in the morning.
