Almeria is in the southeastern part of Spain and is pretty much surrounded by sea and desert. It is in Andalucia province and was Moorish from the 10th through the 14th centuries and still has many Moorish buildings. The Alcazaba (fortress) broods over the harbor in Almeria as we sail into port. Cathy stays to see Almeria while my husband and I take the tour to nearby Granada to see the Alhambra.
The landscape is honey colored and the silver-green olive trees are the only color I see looking out of the bus window on the way to Granada and the Alhambra. As we get closer, I also see almond trees covered in lacy white blossoms and white windmills (just waiting for a gigantic Don Quixote) My husband has the beginnings of a cold and naps during the 2 Â½ hour ride but wakes up for the guided tour through the Alhambra.
