I can get used to this whole siesta thing...

Greetings from Granada, day 5! We´ve been having a great time. Richard (Dick´s father) has managed to switch his Spanish course, and is now taking his classes in the morning. Dick and I have been sleeping in every morning. We managed to get out early enough for churros on Tuesday. We´ve been doing a lot of eating - love tapas! It´s fantastic - you sit down, order a drink, and they bring you free tapas to enjoy! side note: the Spanish love their fried food! We did have the most delicious fried eggplant last night. (not to mention the fried calamari, fried fish, etc.,) Still loving the Gazpacho!

Dick and I went to the Alhambra yesterday afternoon/early evening. Beautiful architecture, and amazing history. I took several pictures.

Aside from eating, and walking around, we´ve enjoyed an occasional siesta - that is, napping in the afternoon. I can certainly understand why Adrianne loves the lifestyle here so much!

Today is our last full day in Granada. We will be having dinner tonight with Adrianne´s Spanish Mother and brother, and one of her friends from school. We´ll be renting a car tomorrow morning, and will head south to meet our friends, Robert & Andrew in Marbella.
