I got lost on my way to my hostel, had to call Christina and everything went weird after that.  Seemed like I went the wrong way down a street, and by the time I got to my hostel (I got sidetracked by food and new people), I got it just in time.  It was a room with (I think) seven other people.  And yes, by the time this stay was done, I wanted nothing more than to not see another hostel again!  After this one, the flooding in Madrid and Krakow...it was cheap hotels for me.

Christina and I did a bus tour of Granada, which was fun!  I didn't get in to see the Alhambra this time, but I'd seen it back in '96.  Ate at McDonalds once since nothing else was open- I had nuggets if I remember right.  Got introduced to tapas, which I'm now obsessed with.  Had seafood paella once and it was good!! 

Spent enough time in bars, eating tapas and generally having a good time.  I tried a mojito and remember saying "I'm a one-Mojito woman."  That was my MySpace quote for quite a while.

Once my time in Granada was up, I took a bus to Malaga, ate dinner at the hotel and stayed the night, then flew to Basel, Switzerland.
