granada

- felt similar to seville and almost as touristy; also lots of americans studying spanish

- running out of time...only two nights.

- camped near the bus station, little bit out of the action, but good to crack out the tent.

- the alhambra was the focus, but had a great walk around the old moorish neighbourhood on the hill opposite the alhambra complex; stunning backdrop provided by the snow-capped sierra nevada range.

- alhambra is a must see....packed with people....but really is an amazing piece of art/architecture...

- didn't sample too much food, cooked at the campsite, but definitely looked like a place to eat, drink and be merry.

- bus onto alicante, our flying out point...

alicante

- not such a bad place, only had an afternoon and then the following morning.

- strolled around the old quarter and waterfront.

- spectacular fort high up overlooking the town.

- great municiple market we found the after we'd done our cooking in the pension.

- nice, cheap, friendly pension, had a bit of a doggy odour unfortunately.

- 22 degrees on the day we flew out; beatifull....

onto london
- greeted by drizzle and a 2 degree afternoon in london, but Eric (mark's cousin) picked us up from the airport, great to see him and great to be in london (minus the weather).
