We spent 4 nights in Seville at a good hostel with A POOL! They ran nights where we went out with everyone for tapas and a flamenco show (staring a masculine woman looking like Steven Segal in drag), and an in-house paella night which was great. We got out of the pool and the hostel on the last day there and seen some of the city. Then we made our way to Granada and did the same without the pool. We seen the Alhambra (a big muslim castle/palace/fort/gardens) which was ok. The place in really hyped up and apparantly people line up for hours from 6 am for tickets. We managed to get some online otherwise we wouldnīt have bothered.
Then we came to Valencia. Yesterday was the tomato fight (La Tomatina), and we ruined some clothes while throwing tomatos and being crushed in the crowd. Lisa fell over at one stage and things looked grim, but a couple of nice people helped and we managed to save her. Lisa also ended up with a sore (possibly broken) toe and is looking for sympathy. Please email your support for this worthy cause. There is a movie below, so check it out. There was also TV cameras there so there will some news footage on the net if you do a search.
*** Beard Update ***
The beard is still being clipped and the chin area in being left to grow to its full potential. Length is at around an inch, maybe just over.

Now we are still in Valencia for the rest of today and fly to Rome tonight. More to come...
