SPAIN, JULY 2011, Barza, Valencia, Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla, Barza, Paris at night is dark

Nightfall in Valencia

                                                                Plaza de Espania, Seville

at the Mosque-Cathedral in Cordoba

I wanted to attended the International Cultic Studies Association Annual Conference in Barcelona, July 5-7;
I also wanted to have a vacation with Aura; so we flew to Barza and took off directly by train to Valencia; we were deligthed by the city which has a lot to offer, climate, culture, city, sea... after 2 night we made for Granada the great, the Alhambra, the Cathedral...
I had a special spot for Cordoba and Aura joined my enthusiasm; he had the best hotel in town, from out window, we looked accross the Guadalquivir and the Roman Bridge to the Mosque Cathedral...pity we had planned only one night... what an enjoyable city;
Sevilla was hot but so was El Arenal, the 'tablao' which a friend had recommended... Beautiftul cathedral, the Golden Tower, the Giralda...the cafes accross the street from the cathedral where we sat until the early hours...
