One odd, middle-eastern influenced city...

We stayed in a 4-star hotel, which was very, very nice. Heated towel racks, continental breakfast, and it was in a very central-spot. Granada was interesting . . .to say the least.
The Spanish lisp was most apparent here. It made it much harder for me to understand anyone, especially the guy in the sandwich shop that we ate at multiple times.
The Alhambra was amazing, HUGE, very intricate, and sunny. I tried to imagine what it would have looked like when it was actually in use. And I still have yet to read the Washington Irving book "The Alhambra," which I bought there. In the evening, we walked around the city and went into some sketchy shops. Any and every kind of device used for smoking could have been found in these shops. They had gorgeous mini-hookah pipe things...but they're breakable and customs would have grilled my ass if I brought one back.
