Fridays are fantastic. For one thing they welcome in the week-end, so I like to find a photo of something fantastic to celebrate them.
Winding our way through the ancient narrow lanes was one of our favourite things to do in the Albaicin area of Granada, Spain. The Albaicin is a collection of white washed North African inspired abodes, crowded against each other on the steep slopes overlooking the Alhambra.
Some of these abodes had old doors held together with electrical cable, while others offered glimpses of their interiors through enticing porticos. Passing a derelict building where unreadable grafiti adorned the walls we smiled at others that had tiny balconies overflowing with infectiously happy geraniums.
As hills are not my forte, when I was not fascinated by the myriad of sights above me, I was contemplating the pavement beneath me as I plodded uphill.
That was when I noticed the manholes.
I guess there must be a maze of drainage and other works concealed beneath the pavements of this medieval Moorish settlement.
Enjoy this Fantastic Friday and have a wonderful week-end.
