Just in case you didn't get enough, here are some more photos from last week. After we finished the Alhambra, I was starving, so we went down town, parked in the first public parking place we saw and stopped in the first café we saw and ordered Kabobs. They are not meat on a skewer here. You know in Gyro shops, the meat they roast on vertical spits? When you order a kabob you get thin slices of that meat with shredded lettuce, cabbage, onion, etc in some sort of bread. Here in Fuen they use a tortilla. In Granada they used a pita. I was really glad to eat and would have enjoyed anything, but this was good. Then, we started walking down the street, partly because we didn't want to move the car. We were in medio dia so all the shops were still closed, but there was a pedestrian street so we went down that. As we went along we looked right and saw this!
|This is the Granada Cathedral!. It is pretty modern for this country, started in the 1500s and finished in the 1700s.|
|This sculpture above the doors was beautiful, though I am still not quite sure what is being depicted.|
|The interior was light and airy compared with some that we have seen lately. Here is one part of the organ pipes.|
|This gives just a hint of the interior size and a glimpse of the art everywhere.|
|I took this photo from the ground level with the telephoto and available light. That is a bright cathedral!|
|Rod wanted a photo of Rameumptom... te he. It is beautiful tho ornate.|
|Won't need the glasses to read this music. The music stand has to be something else though.|
|A full suit of armor and horse mounted on a wall. I think it is one of the kings, there is a heathen under the horse's hoofs if you look carefully.|
The Spainhowers, who were working in Malaga with the YSA group there had us over to dinner last Wednesday and so we got a last photo or two. I especially enjoyed our evening because they taught us some card games. I really enjoy games, but Rod doesn't really so I seldom get to play. Hey, remember the knertz games? We have to revive those.
|Trying for a different expression|
|Aren't we cute?|
