The dude doesn't visit Granada......the dude has lived in the province of Granada since 2005.

The pics you see are taken 150 miles from the city of Granada, which is where the Alhambra actually is.

And in fact those shots were mostly taken in the province of Almeria.....so I've no idea what the Alhambra even has to do with it because I was actually going in the opposite direction. :s_rofl

Daughter studied abroad in Granada (city) I visited for a week and was blown away. Love the place. Did a little car touring. Love to spend 6 months or more touring around.

I know where it is ... I spent a few days in Granada and at the Alhambra. My point was ... the one worth photographing, IMO, is the Alhambra.

Sorry ... didn't realize you lived there as your shots looked typical ones Brit Tourist would take. You must be an expert on the
Alhambra. I was very impressed with it ... and the history is astounding.

This Castle in France wasn't bad either, but the interior can't match the Alhambra ... Do you know it?

That trip was 8 weeks/12K miles in all. Started off in the UK, toured round France, Spain, Portugal ... then over to Morocco and back to Spain, up to Italy and back to France to store bike until next year.
