The Last Córdoba Post … This Month

This is it. I promise. I’ve got even more photos from our day in Córdoba, but I won’t bore you with them all. Today, we start with lunch at Bodegas Mezquita on Calle Cespedes in the old Jewish Quarter, just across from the Mezquita/Cathedral. Exceptional food at good prices. Great service.

After lunch, we walked a bit. Until San Geraldo pooped out and I continued on my own.

San Geraldo says I dumped him. I like to think I parked him comfortably in an air-conditioned café. (Click the pics for a closer look at what San Geraldo saw and what he missed.)

And that completes our tour.

I’m glad this is done. Now I can get back to telling embarrassing stories about San Geraldo.
