Happy Friday everyone,
It's been a great week. Wednesday night I went "A la marcha" for the first time. A la marcha, or the march, is the slang term to describe the nightlife here. Young Spaniards will go out to a bar or for tapas around 10, where they will have dinner and drink until the bars close at 12 or 2. This means that it is time to relocate to the discoteca, where they will often party until the morning. You are a true Spaniard ...
... a couple of metres higher, but I've no chance of scaling it - nor has anyone else without the necessary climbing experience and equipment.
The descent on the other side of the summit is a good deal easier than my ascent route. There's a hint of a path in places and when I get down to the next col, there's even a few people about, though I'm not sure whether they've been to the top too. Perhaps overconfident, this is where I make my second mistake and start heading ...

I've been attracted by an entry in one of my guidebooks which describes the Vereda de Estrella - the path to the star - an apparently well-known and well-made footpath crossing the northern edge of the Sierra Nevada, which is supposed to give good views towards the high peaks ...
... bits like the Charles V Palace (which looks more like an arena than a palace). A lot of redecorating was done, poorly. And the beautiful historic Arab stuff took a bit of a beating. However, what remains is still a stunning example of Arabian architecture.
We explored it by night. All lit up, with big windows opened up to the lights of the city. Cool courtyards with pools, intricately decorated ...
