When in Spain, drink beer.

Jos, your Córdoba yarn reminds me of last April in Rome. During the whole of our trip Mrs Steve and I ate all the same grub. The one exception was that, on our last day, I topped up my water bottle at a suspiciously slow-running drinking fountain in the Vatican Museums. Just after arriving home the next day I suffered a rip-roaring four-day bout of V and D and she didn't. Poisoned by the bloody pope....

Rome prides itself on its thousands of safe public drinking fountains...

We went to Córdoba in the height of summer a couple of years ago. The daytime temperature was 40C and I remember wandering around the city at eleven at night with the temperature still at 37C. I loved Córdoba and the mesquita-catedral. The year before we went to Granada in similar heat and saw the Alhambra by moonlight, visiting the gardens the next morning. Unforgettable. See both before you die!
