Evening 12: Córdoba

The advantage for us on our no-travel days is that we free up more time for exploring. We'd already been around much of Córdoba today for about six hours, and yet were home comparitively early. That gave us time for Clare to blog about the day (about two hours' work for those that think it's just writing a few words!) and get something to eat, still leaving us with a spare few hours at the end of the day. And so we decided to stroll in the evening.

Since our adventure today by pure fluke ended in the square outside our apartment, we decided to carry on in that direction this evening on what was largely an aimless walk. Whilst Clare and I were discussing the feasibility (or not) of our visiting every European capital, we were greeted with the sight of some Roman remains, pillars emerging from the earth.

What particularly caught our eyes was the poor family of kittens that lived there. I fell for a little tabby whilst Clare was enamoured with what appeared to be a Siamese. The poor blighters were about 12 weeks old. At least some gentle souls had put down some water for them. I tried to find a supermarket to get something for them to eat but couldn't find anything. I suppose they stand a reasonable chance of survival, given the amount of pigeons around here and the lack of other cats.

 

We took a few other turnings and saw the odd church, although we've been so spoilt for choice today that we didn't think of them as anything particularly special. Eventually we looped around to the main square, just as night fell.

And as we approached our apartment we got to see what its square looked like after nightfall.

And now we should think about bed because we have what was an unplanned day ahead of us tomorrow which might just turn out to be the best of the holiday.
