... The food here is also amazing, and I have tried some things I probably would never try in my life (for example, the adults' tricked me into eating a pig's ear and after Uncle Des took a picture of me eating it and everyone started laughing I knew it was something weird haha. Yeah. Well, I wasn't happy with them for a few hours) I swear I put on weight every day, but end up burning it off with all the walking we do which is ...

... in Plaza Bib-Rambla, considered to be the heart of old Granada. Terrific tour with a great guide, we quite enjoyed our time.
After supper we decided to venture the rest of the way up the hill to Alhambra to see it at night. We were surprised to discover that the gates are open and you can see quite a bit in the evening. We had Charles V palace virtually on our own. This is a palace built by the Christian ...
