Sometimes a little rain becomes a downpour, but the Alhambra is always the Alhambra

Not every day in Spain is a sunny one. And late October is prime rainy season. So as Rita, Ila and Ranbir prepared for a day at the Alhambra we watched curiously as the clouds swirled. In the end, they got out (just a few minutes late) and unfortunately, they got the rain. But not before they got to witness the splendor of the palaces. At the end of the visit, just as the group began to separate to visit the different areas and head off in different directions, the skies opened up. In the ensuing scramble to get to cover, the group split up and the three of them made their way back to the city center, stopping for a bite and some excellent sopa de ajo. The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing and drying out a bit at the hotel. In the evening we hit  Chikito's for a last evening meal in Granada, where we had a delicious Sevilla Soup (a white bouillibaisse-like soup which really hit the spot) and tomorrow we are off once more.
