This time Cordoba (Spain). Day 4

It was quite early in the morning when we met together to get the coach to Granada. Sleepy faces and looks that reflected the excitement from the day before at the Fair of Nation. WE RAISED 920€! We got so happy when we put together all the money raised from the different country delegations stands that we couldn't hide our bewilderement.

However, the trip to Granada was going to exceed our expectations as well. The visit to the Children's Village was so revealing and so real. The educators welcomed us and made us feel at home easily. Lots of questions were put forward and answered promptly, some of the information was very, very moving, however the message of hope was there for everybody to pass on and cling to. They were very surprised at the amount of money we gave them, they could not believe what they were seeing. We said our goodbyes and went on with the little tour through the old quarters.

The sights from San Cristobal viewpoint were terrific! Later on, after lunch, we departed from that point going slowly downhill through long winding whitewashed Andalusian streets. Some free time and back to Cordoba on our coach. What a day!
