Travel without contaminating
They say the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain but this was not so true at the start of this stage.
We began in San Francisco square next to the town council. What a pity the weather did not favour us to be able to enjoy this emblematic site in the heart of the city.
Pepe Rodríguez joined us from Seville to Cordoba, together with Juan, an Endesa employee.
This morning, both met up in a local greengrocer where they bought products from the Andalusian countryside. Market activity was buzzing even before the first buyers appeared and fresh products from Seville orchards were piled high on the stands. Among these local vendors was Fernando’s stand, nicknamed Lime Green, where Pepe and Juan made a mandatory stop.
We then began our journey to Cordoba. Despite the rain, the climate did not hinder our enjoyment of the people’s warmth in the beautiful landscapes in the south of Spain.
We arrived at Cordoba town council square around 13h. The local media were waiting for us there to discuss the details of our stage.
A few points of interest
After several interviews we took the mandatory photos with both cars and local authorities. At the photocall, we were joined by the Councillor for Mobility, the Endesa Director for Andalusia and Extremadura and the KIA area manager.
The entire team stopped for lunch in one of the many top quality restaurants that Cordoba offers to bid farewell to the city in style before continuing our journey to Merida.
