Cordoba in People's Lives

Lawrence Durrell: I was appointed Director of the British Council Institute in this city in 1947, and moved here from Rhodes with my wife Eva, to whom I was newly married. I lived and worked here for eighteen months, giving lectures on cultural issues. I disliked this city, and Argentina in general. We moved to London in the summer of 1948.

Viggo Mortensen: I lived here with my family as a child, around 1965.
