Ronda and Cordoba, Spain

On Monday, April 20, we took the train to Ronda, a very picturesque town in the mountains with a large “gorge”.  The train cost 15.40 E each (the dollar to Euro is very close now).  Very economical for almost 2 hour ride.  It was the slow train, but clean and seemed new.  We had to walk,  probably a mile down hill to the viewpoint.  The town of Ronda has some architecture from BC!!

The next day, 22nd, we took the train (newer and more expensive, 41.30 E for 1 hour trip) to Cordoba.  We had planned to go here again, but too expensive by train!!  We were able to use the city buses to get around and find the historic sites.  Again, a very old city with Roman, Turk and Christian influences; amazing!!
