From Cordoba we took a 3 hour bus ride south to picturesque Granada in southern Spain. We rented a small apartment in the Albaycin neighborhood, which has a fantastic view of the Alhambra (a sprawling fortress/palace built by the Moors and later the Spanish) and much of the picturesque city, which you can see by clicking HERE. It has been insanely hot since we arrived, at least 34-35 degrees in the shade if not more, so we have tended to venture out in the mornings and evenings only. There's a distinctive flavour of Arab and Berber culture here which is reminiscent of our trip to Morocco last year - and that is awesome. The Alhambra itself was packed with tourists and steaming, but it was still worth a visit. It is a sprawling epic palace which is interesting to explore. All in all it's been fun, but between the heat and the ongoing jetlag we both feel pretty tired.
