Il Profumo Di Un Amore Puro

Gardens outside the mezquita of Cordoba. The best arch I've seen in all of Spain. The more iconic arches of the mezquita. Chilling on the cold, hard ground of the mezquita. This is the ugly part of the mezquita, this forced church in the middle that the Catholic church couldn't refrain from putting there. Statue of a great man, Averroes. Just as in downtown Philly, in Cordoba the equine threat is strong and dispersed. The view from the balcony before the procession started. Photo of central, historic Cordoba. Andalusian pottery. Best street name I ever saw. As is tradition now in Cordoba, a member of the confraternity adds wax to a kid's seasoned wax-ball. The "Paso" passing us by. Picture on a bridge with the lovely neighborhood of Triana in the background. Bridges and other structures of Plaza de España in Seville. A more complete view of the same Plaza de España. Gardens near Plaza de España with jasmine on the viewer's right. MY shot at symmetry. Since we couldn't take pictures inside, here's one right before entering the Archivo General de Indios. View of Seville and its bullring among other things. The garden of the cathedral seen from the Giralda Tower. Steph and Bo being tourists.

These are pictures from only half of the trip to southern Spain, showing the cities of Cordoba and Sevilla, with shots of many famous buildings such as the Mezquita in Cordoba and the Giralda Tower (in the Cathedral) of Sevilla.

My one true love is my team: Juventus and while most days I&#39;m a completely rational being, there&#39;s a 2-hour window during the weekend where I am lost in the joy of fandom. I also play intramural soccer, with semi-finals being the best result so far (fingers-crossed for finals next year!!!!). Always a fan of arguing, I can also be spotted challenging people&#39;s beliefs or stances on a daily basis to spark interesting conversations. Never an avid reader, but more of a picky one, my favourite genre is historical fiction, preferably pre-medieval. Another hobby is singing which I do aloofly around people, so much so that I ended up singing for the Gospel Choir at Gettysburg College, though not being a believer.</span></p>
