Granada Walk About - Part 2

Lemon trees overflow the little back alley ways. In other parts you'll find little courtyards with a fountain and an orange tree growing.

We made it all the way to the bottom of the ravine which separates the Albacine from the Alambra. Makes for a really nice early evening walk. 

Ashley was pretty excited to be dining next to fire. As the sun goes down and the temperature drops, she is sure to stay warm.

We continued our progressive dinner and ordered some wine. This came with a tapa of fried fish and calamari. We have been here a week almost and still have no idea how tapas work. Anyone know? Sometimes you get one with drink, sometimes you don't. Sometimes you can order them, sometimes they get weirded out because you aren't getting a drink which comes with one for free. We have NO idea how Tapas in Spain work.

Had a nice view with dinner. More of the looking up view of the Alambra.

We ordered a serving of Gazpacho. I normally don't like tomato soup. However, this was great. I gladly helped Ashley finish.

Our main courses came. A traditional grenada meal of egg, lamb, chorizo sausage, potatoes, and blood sausage. Also got a yummy artichoke, ham, olive, tomato pizza.

Ashley, quite hungry, was pretty excited about food.

So the sun set as we slowly ate and drank and tried to slow down our pace of life.

Ashley was nice and warm by her blow torch ambiance.

Gotta snap an obligatory night shot of the Alambra.

... and then we walked home in the warm southern spain evening.

A very good Friday indeed.
