  • Planning for Andalucia and Fes
    A trip to Spain and Fes, Morocco, Fall 2015 We plan to visit the Andalusia region of Spain and then go to Fes for about a week. Based on last year’s success with Airbnb apartments, we will stay in Airbnb apartments in Córdoba, Granada, and Seville. Doing so allows us to pack less, since we will be ...
  • Córdoba – 21 September
    Our trip from New Mexico to Spain has started well. All of our flights arrived on time (or early) and our luggage showed up at the airport in Madrid with only a short delay. After a short wait at the Puerta de Atocha train station we got to Córdoba quickly. And, when I say quickly, ...
  • First Full Day in Córdoba
    September 21st It is 10:45 in the evening and Patricia and I have just returned from a good dinner and a flamenco show. We are sitting on the patio of our apartment with the bell tower of the mezquita in the background and our little bell tower in the foreground. The sky is partly cloudy and ...
  • Second Full Day in Córdoba
    Columns and arches in the mezquita. September 22nd Tuesday was a big day for us. Last year we wanted to spend more time in the mosque-cathedral (mezquita) than we were able to. A big part of our plan for this year was to spend several hours in this old, important site and we did. It wasn’t even ...
  • From Córdoba to Granada
    September 23 The Alhambra at night Today was a traveling day. We left our apartment in Córdoba in time to catch a train for Granada. The taxi driver wanted to tell us that he could not go the direct route to the train station because of construction but we had a little bit of a communication problem ...
  • Granada: 2 Very Full Days
    September 24, 25 Looking over the Albaicin district from the Alhambra I suppose I should really give each full day in Granada its own post, but then I would be writing forever; we saw enough for at least two full-length posts. On Thursday we got up early and went to the Alhambra. We got there by taxi from ...
  • First Few Days in Seville
    September 26-29 We have been busy enough in Seville to make it difficult to find time to write. That’s a good thing. We left Granada before it was light on Saturday. It doesn’t get light until 8:00 or so and it stays light until well after 8:00 in the evening. It is different from Santa Fe at ...
  • Two Walking Days in Seville
    September 30, October 1 Wednesday and Thursday were walking days here. We have had very pleasant, just slightly warm days with temperatures in the mid 70s that make for nice walking. On Wednesday we took a walking tour of some of the Triana district with Marta Casals, a guide we met last year. Before we left we ...
  • Andalucian Villages Tour
    October 2, 2015 View from Ronda mirador (lookout) On Friday we had a very good tour of several places in Andalucia that are south of Seville, but north of the Mediterranean. Some of these places have collectively been made famous as the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages). We were in Málaga and Cádiz districts. Our tour started early. We ...
  • First Days in Fes
    October 5, 6, 7 Added about 50 pictures to a new page: Fes Pictures page. Ryad Alya courtyard where I am writing this post Getting to Fes (or Fez, as Patricia insists) from Seville was pretty straightforward, even if we had to get up at 0-dark-thirty. We left the Seville apartment about 5:30 and found a cab right ...
