Next Stop: Andalusia



I'll be exploring the mountains, caves and cobblestone streets of  Andalusia, the independent province of Southern Spain, for a jam-packed week. Courtesy of a media trip sponsored by Turismo De Granada and Iberia Airlines, I'll witness the splendor of the famous Alhambra Palace, pictured above, as well as other Andalusian cultural hallmarks, including flamenco dancing in caves, tasting fresh fish in chiringuitos, the beach bars that line the Costa Tropical coastline and visiting the white-washed mountain villages of Alpujarra. I'm especially excited about tracing the presence of the Moorish rulers from north Africa who ruled the region for seven centuries and left their mark in the architecture, pottery, food and art. Please stay tuned for lots of posts and photos in the coming weeks!

I have been to Granada twice or three times, I forget now. It's got a breath-taking scenery. Up in the mountains the air is so pure that it makes you dizzy. I have been to the city only once on the final day of our stay, the second time went. I loved the Alhambra. I'm really looking forward to reading your travelogue.

Greetings from London.
