La tarde en Granada

This afternoon, Micki and I embarked on one of our homework assignments, a glorified scavenger hunt throughout the city, assigned in the hopes of familiarizing students with the important buildings around Granada, such as the main farmacías, theatres, and fountains. Of course, Micki and I got lost but passed a
very pleasant afternoon getting to know the city in our own way.                                               

 Beautiful paper lanterns stringing from a plaza's trees (Granada seems to have an infinite number of plazas each with its own intricately beautiful fountain that you are NOT to go in under any circumstances...).

 One of the many narrow streets tucked behind the main square.


Our school

The river bisecting Granada (calling to memory Javert, obviously).

A picture of my host father in uniform. I have no idea what he does, but it looks impressive and he has a name tag that says "Capitán." But today he was most proud of the many varieties of fish he caught on a friend's boat.

Bimba, la loquita.


  1. oh my GOSH - these are beautiful! Thank you for sending them to us - we
    can see what its like out there. The city is lovely -

  2. sorry - was cut off before I could finish - el Capitan is very striking!
    Great to see you and Micki relaxed and happy there.

  3. I love your photos, especially the ones with you in the narrow street and next to the canal. You look so comfortable. Remember loosing yourself is the best way to learn about a place, at least that is the way it is done in the Gibbons family, just ask Ganga and Grandad! Luv Tia Catina
