La Feria

My first night in Cordoba at La Feria
The day that we arrived in Cordoba was the final day of the week long fair that occurs every year in Cordoba.  It is one of the biggest events of the year.  Although I partly felt like a zombie after a trip around the world that day, it was totally worth it to go out that night to La Feria.  La Feria lasts one week at the end of May.  It includes carnival rides, games, restaurants, places to dance, and fireworks.  We rode a ride that was similar to a ferris wheel and it was incredible!  When up on top we could see for miles and all that was at La Feria.  It was beautiful.  My host mom packed me water and sandwiches so that I would not have to buy food.  Although, all the food looked delicious.  There were huge baked potato things that were topped with loads of goodies that looked delicious!  We walked around and saw all the rides and places to dance.  Since most of the rides were so expensive we only rode one.  One of my favorite things was all the Flamenco dresses.  The women wore beautiful, ornate dresses and sometimes the moms matched their young daughters.  It was adorable!  At midnight we watched the fireworks.  It was a beautiful sight.
