Snails in Cordoba, Spain

Some people go to Cordoba to soak in the Moorish-influenced architecture. Well, we did check some out.  Here's my attempt at an arty night scene in this idyllic resort town.

But sight seeing is merely of secondary interest.  My best mate and I go to seek out the weird and wonderful - snails Spanish-style!
Forget the half a dozen plump, juicy garlic laden morsels you'd find in your garden variety French escagot.  In Spain, it's truly garden variety - a plate of innumerable (ok we counted nearly two hundred) tiny garden variety snails, boiled and served with crusty bread!  And it was tasty! Not to mention fun to try to extract the little buggers whole before popping them down.  Talk about playing with your food!

The Scream
He's making a run for it!!
A picture says a thousand words, so here are a couple thousand for you to gag upon.

  1. I haven't seen snails for real in my life, it is only pictures and videos where I have seen them. Thank you for sharing some information about the snails with us
