Granada

19June2011: Sunday
After leaving Sevilla, we drove all the way to Granada, we didn't get there until about 1:30am.

That morning we got up and headed to the Alhambra, which an old 14 century fortress built up on this hill in Granada. We spent most of the day there, although, we could only handle a few hours, it was pretty hot. After leaving there, were headed back to Rota along the coast of Spain, stopping to swim and see the rock of Gibraltar.

I was thinkin' the same thing Jules was? Is there like a tarp or something over the street to keep you in the shade, just an idea!! That sunset is amazing...I don't remember seeing that pic, but now I get to!!
