Granada, Spain

We are traveling with our friends, Clarke and Brenda.  To read their version of this trip click here.

Dear Family and Friends,

Today was a high energy day.  It started this morning when Chuck dropped Clarke off at the Alhambra at 6:30am to stand in line and wait for the ticket booth to open at 8:00am.  Thank you Clarke for braving the cold wind and purchasing 4 tickets.

The four of us returned to Alhambra about 1:30pm to get in line to start our 2:00pm tour.  Short of opening hours at Disney World this is the most tourists I have ever witnessed waiting in line.  

They limit the number of tourists that can enter the site each day.  They have morning and afternoon tours.  This has to be the most toured site in all of Spain.

The Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex located on a hill overlooking the city of Granada.  The gardens are extensive.  Thanks to Clarke, we were able to see not only the gardens but the palace also.

Like the other palaces we have visited, the Alhambra was built and first occupied by the Moors.

To be truthful, I am just too tired to talk about each picture.  My feet are so sore and I am about to fall asleep.  I am sure Clarke and Brenda will have a lot of wonderful pictures too.  Just enjoy!!
