Hangin Out with the Dudes
I was on a tour, and as tours go, they can get boring. So I took a seat with these older Spanish dudes and we got to chatting. It turns out this one guy's niece goes to UCLA. That was pretty cool. I would have been down for some serious day drinking with these old timers - I bet they have some stories!
THE JARDINES DE PARTAL
you see, I told you that the sun would shine and the sky would turn blue, look, its reflected in the pool, these gardens were built after the Moors were forced out of Granada, but they are still very old and beautiful, they lead towards the Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra, there used to be a Mosque where it stands, which was for the people of the Medina, but it was destroyed and in the 17th century this church was built here
lets go and get a cup of hot chocolate before we visit the Palace of Carlos V, although the sun is shining its quite cool
Tickets to watch Granada CF football team are a lot cheaper than for similiar level clubs in, for example, England. They play alternate Sundays, kickoff at 5pm.
They regularly have crowds of 8000 and the whole city celebrated when they went up to the second league in 2010. Wear red and white!
The coach was traveling along these canyons for almost 2 hours while heading towards Valencia. A very scenic route; but I think most people onboard were asleep now...Wished Victoria (that's my guide) had told us what's their names.
To the Alhambra
It's a pleasant 20 minute walk to the Alhambra from the city centre, and it's uphill. If you're not feeling energetic go on the minibus (Alhambrabus) which wait at the bottom of Cuesta de Gomerez. Cost is 95 cents (Jan 2006)
