Wednesday October 5 – Córdoba/ La Mezquita

                We met at La Mezquita (The Mosque) at 9:00 because it was free at that time and it is the Alhambra of Córdoba. It is most known for its many, many red and white striped arches inside. It was once used by Muslims, then Jews, then Christians, now from my understanding they all use it but it is mostly for Christians.
                After we had breakfast on a terrace that is a club at night, then we went to another place and ate salmorejo, which is a typical dish of Córdoba and is very similar to gazpacho but is thicker and has tiny bread crumbs in it. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.
                The girls again had class so this time Adam and I went to Museo Torre de la Calahorra (Calahorra Tower Museum) and did an audio tour and learned about how the Jewish, Muslim, and Christians lived together. It was very cool but I think it would have been better had we not been so tired.
                We met up with the girls and had a drink before we left. On the two hour and 45 minute bus ride home Adam and I talked the whole time about random stuff. It was very nice to have a long conversation like that. We got home at 11:00.
