Granada is an easy city to love. Here are my first impressions.
The first time we saw these balloon sellers was one Sunday in a park in Barcelona when we were on the Fat Tire Bicycle Tour. This photo was taken on Sunday in Granada. I guess Sunday is when families go out into the plazas. We also saw lots of families dressed up in their Sunday best strolling along the Carrera del Darro (the cobblestone street that follows the Rio Darro). The Rio Darra is small and flows swiftly beneath the high outcrop that the Alhambra perches on. On Sunday afternoons the Carrera is full of locals and tourists out strolling, street entertainers and artists, and all the cafes have tables out in the sunshine.
The building in the sunshine is part of the Alhambra. I will do a separate post on the Alhambra as I have a million photos to sort through! I did start getting a little selective when my camera’s battery started getting low.
This was a particularly yummy tapas I had. Including a large beer (they usually give you a small beer with the cheaper tapas) it cost 3 euro. Not that I am complaining about the one I had the day before. It was a small beer and two pieces of french bread spread with anchovy paste topped with an anchovy plus some green olives on the side for 1.5 Euro.I always say that first impressions count, but in Granada’s case I am sure that my second and third impressions will be just as good!
