Feeling at home in Cordoba

It’s been a while since my last jaunt in Spain, but the memories of Cordoba still linger on… I actually wanted to dedicate a whole post to the Mosque of Córdoba (which is also a Cathedral…which is kinda confusing… either way, it is a truly stunning monument for sure), but once again realised I don’t have much to say… It’s been there for more than a thousand years now, I cannot exactly write anything “new” about it. And when I think about, it wasn’t (just) the Mosque what I liked about Cordoba.

久しぶりにコルドバについて書こうと思ったがどうも言葉がうまく浮かんでこない。

It was…. the river and its wildlife that drew my attention, the Roman bridge that had me gawking at it from every angle, the water wheel I walked down to through weed and clouds of bugs, my cozy little room situated only a few minutes walk from the heart of the city, it was all of this and more.

Cordoba, as a whole, felt welcoming (to me, much more welcoming than Seville or Granada). Maybe (actually I suspect there is no maybe here), at the end, I’m a small town girl after all. パリやロンドンや東京のような大都会も大好きだけど、私にとってはコルドバがすごく心地よく感じた。I felt right at home there.
