My last day here. I had two errands–to sell some books I’d finished and to mail a postcard. But first I have to show you the elevator and front gates of my apartment.
This is a pretty modern building, but all the apartments have two locking entries and elevators with an outside door and an inside sliding metal grill.
Then, just yesterday, I was talking to Michael and Liz and complaining about the lack of good vegetables, so I felt I should share this picture of the best place to buy veggies, which is a stand right up the street.
And there were crates of tomatoes right across from these. But I hadn’t yet walked in this direction. But I was looking for the bookstore, which I found a block further on.
This is the back room, but the front room is almost the same, except it had two chairs, occupied by the owner and his friend and I was too shy to take their pictures. It was a few more blocks to the post office, which is the only place I have seen a mailbox. By this time it was almost 11 and getting hot so I took a shortcut through a mall, with lots of little boutique clothing stores.
A lovely cool way to walk a few blocks. I almost bought some clothes I don’t need, but I am packing and know I have no more room. Cordoba really is a very liveable city. I am sure it would take me months to winkle out all the good little bits. I am aware of entire areas I didn’t even touch. But now I have a new book to read, which I sort of got in trade for the two I sold. And a veggie tart from the bakery to go with the rest of the salami.
