October 17-19: Weekend Trip to Granada in Andalucia

Moracoan Streets of Granada

A park at the top of the city...

We can see the Alhambra!

The most amazing Lebanese restaurant in the world. We went back a second time for the delicious humus and lamb! Mmm!!

Statue of Christopher Columbus at the end of Gran Via. They really love Columbus in Spain, and I'm not sure why...

Moracan Tea House

I had Egyptian tea! My friend Thais had te de mil noches y una (a thousand and one nights). We're not tourits. For reals, yo.

Cathedral of Granada

The Annunciation

Plaza in front of the Cathedral

Not quite sure what this is... Just very pretty!

Fountain in the Plaza

Finally, la Alhambra!

Beautiful fountains in the gardens!


This was pretty awesome: stairs with flowing water banisters.

A beautiful little fountain in a garden...

Correro del Toros

On October 13, I attended a bull fight in Madrid! Quite an experience, although I will probably never, ever return. :-( Maybe I'm a dummy, but I did not know they kill the bull (actually 6 bulls) until a few days before the bull fight. It was a good cultural experience, but still, it was pretty sad to see.

Warning: There are a few pictures below you may want to skip if you are squeamish...

Plaza del Toros

Opening Ceremony

El Matador!


Okay, looks can be deceiving. I look really happy, but I was pretty sad on the inside.
