Europe Tour (Day 3)
Sampai Seville pagi2 buta. Being backpackers, kami hanya freshen ourselves up di public wc, cuci muka, gosok gigi...hehehe. Ye, tidak mandi.
Seville is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. It is the capital of Andalusia and of the province of Sevilla. Here, we visited Plaza Espana (used as a setting for Naboo in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, walaupun it was digitally modified. Gorgeous, y'all!), Parque de Maria Luisa, and the royal palace, Reales Alcazares. One word. CANTIK!
Tgh hari, hop on our train to Cordoba pula. Took us about 1 hour plus to get there. Ingat tak masa sekolah dulu ada belajar sejarah tentang Masjid Cordoba? I've always wanted to see this place. It's called Mezquita (Spanish for "mosque"), was at one time the second largest mosque in the world and is now a Roman Catholic cathedral. It's so beautiful, and yet so hideous. The sight almost made me weep.
Pergi dgn perasaan yg sedih melihat alterations yang dilakukan sewenang-wenangnya terhadap Masjid Cordoba, we had to catch our bus to Granada pula. Esok pagi2 nak beratur to get tics untuk melawat Alhambra (wooot!) coz online tics sudah kehabisan. Hotel di Granada adalah murah meriah! Peon got it thru last minute online booking, it was only 30 euros, orginally priced at 60. Double sharing, tv, bath en-suite, siap dgn bath tub. Spent the nite watching Real Madrid kick Barcelona's ass and win the Cup.
