I am in Córdoba. I like it here.
This evening we were taking a stroll, my nieces, my sister, and I.
Dando un paseo
That's something I like about Spain. Families and friends taking walks around the town together. It is normal. It happens every day. So many people out and about. Together.
We walked by jasmine
Lots of jasmine hanging down the wall.
Ada, Margot, and I couldn't get enough of it.
And so, one of my favorite tangos, from Camarón along with a video ...
I told you that today I'd tell you about going to see Estrella Morente in Córdoba. So today I'll share a video of Estrella Morente and a song she sang at the show.
I want to tell you about the end of the show...
when she sang Volver as an encore.
A bit further down in the post you can see a video of her performing it and looking very beautiful.
She does it as a bulerías. I discovered that it was originally a tango, not the flamenco kind, the Argentinian kind, by Carlos Gardel and that the words were written by Alfredo Le Pera.
We'll get to the song in a moment,
But first, about the show in Córdoba.
We spent just two days in Córdoba on the last trip.
Two days to see the city and one night to see Estrella Morente perform. I'll tell you about that on Friday.
It was my second visit to Córdoba
The first visit was in 1998, the first time I went to Spain.
I went there after my sister left.
I went there by myself.
