Not a bad place at all. Heat if you need it in the winter; very clean. The guy who works there speaks very, very clear Spanish. The roof patio was also pretty swell. Nothing special, but nice enough. And seriously cheap for this town, too.

The 11th place I stayed was Cordoba. We were still with my grandparents in Cordoba, we were with them until Sevilla, the stop after Cordoba.
We stayed in Cordoba for 2 nights, but we only really did 3 things, because, like Granada, we wandered around the streets for a long time.

In 1523 they built a proper cathedral centre in there as well, complete with altar, nave and choir, so it is now a unique blend of Renaissance and Moorish religious architecture. It has always been a very controversial site. Overall though, it's just a stunning building and we spent a lot of time staring up at the ceiling with ...
... and somehow they seemed to work.
The highway took us through grove after grove of olives. It was quite thrilling to see them all. There was some smog or cloud cover or something so some of the landscapes were imperfect but we tried to get some photos of the groves. Our first stop was to verify that they were indeed olive trees and I actually saw olives on the trees. This was a first for me. The olives were black and soft - both ...
... the guy singing was telling some sort of sad story. It was quite moving, and we sat and watched this for a good hour or two by which time the bar was jam packed full of people. Just amazing, I love random experiences like that.
So tomorrow we head for Cairo but first we have to get to Madrid with a quick trip on the high speed train. The train tickets were expensive, but we decided to treat ourselves to a bit of luxury and the novelty of travelling on something that moves ...
