A relaxing day.

Today was just a relaxing day. I didn't wake until late, as usual, and then I walked to the train station which wasn't as far as I thought it would be. When I came into town I had taken a cab since it was so late but then when I looked at the map a bit I realized that it was close enough to walk. I figured out the train trip to Cadiz which only costs 4€ since I have the eurorail pass and then on the way back I walked up to Albyzier. I don't think I spelled that correctly but it is a neighborhood of Granada. It's the neighborhood that faces Alhambra. It is a wonderful walk up sloping streets and stairs within a beautiful area. I found a place to take a picture of Alhambra at and then a small cafe where I passed an hour reading and eatching a 'tabla' (a plate) of serrano ham, cheese and some melon while I drank a few cokes. Serrano ham is like procuttio, it's a dried cured ham that does not need to be cooked. They slice it very thin and I like eating it with cheese. The melon was icing on the cake.
As I was hitting the sack early, since the train trip was at 8am, I met my room mates who I had only said hello to in passing. Another two canadians, a korean, a norweigan, and an englishman. We must have talked for 3 hours. All of them were great and it would have been nice to spend more time talking with them, maybe over some beers or wine or something.
