The flamenco performance in Sevilla was very interesting. I had no idea men also danced... but one came slinking down the stairs and danced for a while. The singing was very... different. She sounded like Merritt. Cadiz was fantastic. The beach was very hot and very nude. It was a culture shock for sure. Our last meal was a little Italian place on the beach. We went back to the hotel and stayed up until 3 in the morning when we left for the airport. Although crunched for time the entire trip home, we finally made it. The trip was unforgettable... ADIOS!

We boarded a bus in Granada and took it with luggage in tow to Cordoba, where we stopped to tour the Mezquita. La Mezquita de Cordoba was gorgeous. Although originally a mosque, it was eventually converted to a cathedral and is now a Christian house of worship. We boarded the bus again and Merritt sat across from me. When I opened my eyes I saw her dead asleep, mouth hanging open, with one eye staring at me. We finally got to Sevilla, which is much hotter than Granada, and went on a walk exploring the city last night. This morning we had a REAL breakfast and took a tour of a couple of cathedrals, both were amazing. Tonight we are going to watch a flamenco performance. Only four more days!
