Granada
Getting to Granada was no problem, I think it has to do with the fact that unlike Morocco Spanish buses seem to have intact windshields. We even managed to find the hostel we reserved online despite the "climb this unmarked path, turn right at the cactus, turn right at the next cactus, we're on the right of the cactus" directions. Granada is huge but despite that the sunset over the Sierra Nevadas is still beautiful. By far the highlight of the city is the Alhambra, Granada's own Moorish Castle. In fact this was the whole reason for our trip there. The Alhambra, for me, took all of the Arabic architecture we saw in Morocco and displayed in it a more grandiose form. The "Generalife" portion of the Alhambra is a huge area dedicated to gardens, and my favorite part. The pictures we took can say more than I can.

Leaving Granada we headed back to Malaga for one more night before our flight to London. At this late stage in our trip I was becoming paranoid about having something stolen. I think it is just because we have had so few problems that I was expecting at least one thing to go horribly wrong. We got back to our hotel in Malaga and the bags we left before heading to Morocco were all still there, paranoia over... for the moment. All there was left to do was have the best, most meat-cheese-and-sour-cream-filled, baked potato ever and catch our flight to London.
