Hola!!! So…it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted anything…So sorry!! I’ve been busy and sick. I think I mentioned in my last post that I got a bad cold after going to Sevilla. Well, that turned into a bad ear infection as I have a large history of ear problems….and I needed to go to the doctor twice for different antibiotics because it just didn’t want to go away. Once the ear infection was finally subsiding, I was hit pretty hard with a violent stomach flu. Yep, it’s been a lovely couple of weeks for me. However, I do believe that I am doing well now and hopefully will continue to do so for the rest of my trip. So, I’ve just been in Granada over the last couple of weeks, I have done some exploring and such and have some more pictures of course. We went on a hike last weekend (Jana, Craig, and myself), which was really fun. We also had a flamenco excursion, for which we had a dance class, tapas, and watched a flamenco performance all in one of the caves of Sacromonte, which is a neighborhood of Granada. This past weekend, there has been a film festival called “RetroBack” here in Granada for the last couple of weeks, so Jana and I went on Friday and saw “The Barefoot Contessa” starring the lovely Ava Gardner.
So here are some photos from the Flamenco night!! It was so much fun!!! I stole some of these pics from FB, so they aren’t all mine.
My ass and I. 🙂
Noelia and Edu, our program directors!! They’re great! 🙂
Woo hoo dance class!
Tapas! Noelia and Edu gave us each a flower typical of this area. It was a nice accessory for the night.
The following pictures are from around Granada, walking/hiking/exploring.
I’m trying to get into running….
“March of Dignity..” some sort of protest. I thought I’d join in.
Jana and I had a nice Valentines date..
This weekend we did the movie from RetroBack, here are a few pictures from it.
So, that’s it for now. Coming up, I think next weekend I’m going to Cadiz, which is a city four-five hours away. They have a two week long festival which is supposed to be really fun. I think the 3rd weekend in March, Jana and I are going to Berlin, so I’m getting really excited about that! We kind of just booked it, it was pretty cheap so it will be an adventure!
I will try to blog more often now that I’m not sick and tired…try….hahaha.
