Sevilla - La Giralda


Felt a little fatigue yesterday. Getting on and off trains. Finding ones bearings, getting lost in a strange city. It was starting to get to me. Also there are on boats from Cadiz to Genoa. Need to go to north Africa to get to Genoa by boat. So I will head to Bilbao and then to Paris. I wanted to see Cadiz for the Moorish skyline. Walking around last night I was struck by that all religous buildings started life as either islamic or jewish places of worship. Then they were run out of town. Good book to read about this: city of lights. How all religous groups in Spain lived together in peace before the crusades. While the rest of Europe was in the dark ages the Moors had a life style just as good as today.
