|Today I bought another book - Spain has the most convoluted history.
We walked through the gardens by the Alcazar to get to the older part of town and the Cathedral. There was a monument for Christopher Columbus in the middle of the garden. He seems to be everywhere. There is a tomb in the Cathedral floor but they moved him to another chapel just a few feet away. Maybe he'll get to stay there.
This Cathedral like a lot of the ones I'm Spain was originally a mosque. Therefore the architecture is a mixture of styles. After a delightful lunch of tapas we headed back to the hotel to collapse.
For dinner we went to a restaurant that had a Flemenco show. It was a lot of fun. Before they started Eduardo and Monica (one of the dancers) gave us a detailed introduction to this style of dancing. That made all the difference in our enjoyment of it. At the end of the show Eduardo was on the stage dancing too - you have to know him to appreciate how funny that was.
We have a long traveling day tomorrow so I'm going to turn in.
Love to all of you!
