eat, see & do!
an ode to granada
oh granada - you're so beautiful.
your buildings look like gelati
your kebabs taste like hope feels
now i need to go home and do pilates
the alhambra steps were many
do my calves look good?
the mosaics definitely look better
those tilers had more patience than i ever could
the hole-in-the-wall cafes
and the steep pebbled streets
the purple-skied sunsets
and dad's obsession with cured meat.
your cathedral was impressive
would you let me play on those organs?
i wonder how many people
have walked these streets before us?
for some reason there was fireworks (???)
and a cafe 4 cats (!!)
but despite only having been there last week
i can't wait to go back
and the andalucian saga continues! i hope you liked the poem! something different eh? we were in granada for only two nights and the links to the highlights of what we did were in the poem. something i would recommend is booking your alhambra tickets months before your trip because they sell out like crazy (justin bieber ain't got nothin on that thing). walking around the city, driving through the mountains and finding secret kebab places are some fond memories, but nothing beats watching the purple sunset from the lookout above the city square in the old town. except maybe cupcakes. but like, only the really good cupcakes.
