the rocks and boulders of history

Untitled
I didn't do much sight-seeing in Zaragoza. Something about hating being a tourist. But on the weekends, between the work and the beer, stepped out a bit, to wander around ...
Untitled
... because everyone loves a good obelisk ...
Untitled
... and kissing the pillar in the grand Basilica ...
Untitled
... although the (relatively) tiny La Seo Cathedral on the side had its charms too ...
Untitled
... and who said Medieval peeps didn't know how to get down.

My last weekend there, I made it a point to get out to the Aljafería Palace, on a Sunday of course - who passes up free admission?! Not this idiot ...
Untitled
... and it was worth every penny ...
Untitled
... arches and carvings, all a wonderful mix of Moorish/European influences ...
Untitled
... a dining hall fit for a king ...
Untitled
... but a humble little prayer area to remind all of his piety.

And just when you're feeling all inspired from what you've seen, you walk by this on the way home. Com'on Spain, get your shit together.
