Spain, Day 1 of 10 (Thursday, 24 May 2001)

Day 2 Home

We arrived in Granada (flew Atlanta to Madrid, then on to Granada) and took a cab to Hotel Guadalupe, near the Alhambra.

We lunched at La Mimbre, a quaint outdoor spot between the hotel and the Alhambra. Good sangria and gazpacho.

Walked down the hill ("Cuesta de los Chinos") and into the town. Tried to find the Cathedral and managed to walk past this colossus while standing in front of it. Found it eventually (and felt dumb).

Grabbed a bocadillo (and took note of the ubiquitous oil & vinegar containers), walked back up the steep Cuesta do los Chinos to the hotel.
