    Beware of gypsy palm readers in the tourist market areas. My students and I got caught unawares at some shops near the Capilla Real. If they offer you a 'gift' don't take it--they'll grab your hand and rattle off your fortune. Then they'll expect you to pay for the reading. If you refuse to fork over the pesetas, you'll have maldiciones ringing in your ears as you hurry away. It kind of reminds me of that Stephen King movie 'Thinner' . . . yikes.

    The Alhambra. It looks quite run down (I think they're doing renovations on it right now), and one feels like he's on a conveyor belt when he goes in. There are tonns of tourists and you're pretty much moved through the place with the current. You should probably still see it. It did play a role in Spanish history and the size of it is very impressive, however, be prepared for the hoards of tourists that you will encounter there.

    Avoid...

    by maria_mullah Written Oct 28, 2005

    Skip Pans and company when you're feeling hungry. It's expensive and the servings are of disappointing size.

    Fun Alternatives: Go to a local café instead and get real spanish food - cheaper, better and with a lot cosier atmosphere.

    At the end of the Mexuar is this Oratory.

    Here the sultan came to do its prays, the decorations of the mihrab are all religious related.

    Generally I'm not too into human statues ... but I have to give props to this one in Granada for her fine costume and poise.

    Con qué trabajo tan grande
    deja la luz a Granada!
    Se enreda entre los cipreses
    o se esconde bajo el agua.
