Hey you, up there! What are you looking at so intently?
I have fallen in love with the colours of Seville (oh those glorious yellows and reds), but Cordoba took my love for white walls adorned with rows and rows of blooming flower pots and my penchant for those unique Andalusian facade decorations (horseshoe! ladle! seashell!) to a whole new level. Cordoba also houses some seriously handsome fellows. Just look at those two flirting up a storm from their respective verandas, like a furry Romeo and Juliet. (Either that, or maybe they are mortal enemies, depending on how you interpret their heated barking…)
Then there are those eerily familiar looking (no relation though) objects peeking back at you from every shop window, especially around Semana Santa. These figures are actually pretty cute when looked at without prejudice, I can understand the appeal. Those air conditioner units (mounted on almost every other apartment wall) though, necessary as they might be, are a real eyesore.
Cordoba is overflowing with plants, flowers and at a little market, so this one time not in a window, I even found some little orange trees. Sweetest little citrus ever. I was seriously temped to try and smuggle one home. In the end, I didn’t even buy a souvenir, because for one, aside from the occasional magnet, I never do, and for two I couldn’t decide on one thing…
But Cordoba, I have fallen for you. Hard. And these are just some tidbits, I have found while wandering around the streets, looking up at windows, doing some pet watching… So just enough to get you hungry for more.
