A trip to Cordoba today provided so many photos I won't be able to post even a fraction of them for Project 365 so I decided to share a few of them today.
The purpose of the trip was to once again check on our D.N.I.s (national I.D. cards). Still not in. Although we were offered a small glimmer of hope as the man at the front desk said a batch of cards for foreigners recently came in but hasn't been put into the system yet.
While we were downtown we took in a few of the sights. First up: Colegio Montserrat which was founded in 1687. When you first walk in, you can feel how worn the floor has become due to centuries of use. Classrooms are filled with antique desks (the really, really old ones that are over 100 years old). Which I guess when you think about it, are relatively new compared to the rest of the school.The central courtyard appears to be a favorite place to hang out.
University of Cordoba which is even older (the oldest in Argentina, second oldest in the Americas). I am totally in love with the architecture of this place. Is this doorway not one of the most gorgeous things you have ever seen?!
Also stopped for a short visit with our friends who live in the southern part of the city. Juan is a retired pastor in the Grace Brethren Fellowship -- which will be celebrating 100 years in Argentina next month! My in-laws were missionaries here with Grace Brethren Foreign Missions so my husband and I hope to see lots of people he knows at the fiesta grande in Río Cuarto.
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of downtown Cordoba. I'll have more photos on Sunday with Project 365.
