George’s Postcard Note: On our way to lunch, we passed by the Mezquita’s magnificent outer walls. A series of ornate entry niches decorate its otherwise plain walls, each well-preserved niche showing off its glimmering tilework, moorish arches and polished bronze doors. After lunch, with the rest of Cordoba siesta-quiet, I settled in between parked horse buggies and dozing grooms to capture this corner, glowing brightly in the afternoon sun. I hope I have captured both the shear scale of this structure – it stretches for blocks through the old quarter – and the shimmering details of one of its entry niches.
