Cordoba- Day 10

Once again we hopped  a small bus to the scenic town of Cordoba. I was told we would be visiting a mosque so I wore long appropriate garb and what do you know? It was a mosque that has since been turned into a church and it was super hot outside. I looked real nice by the end of the day. But we met our tour guide, Juan, and went to the Jewish neighborhood and then the Mosque/church. We had cheap tapas, did a little shopping and headed back to Sevilla.
