Granada – The Alhambra Back-story
Late last year my pity friend (now known as dear friend and colleague DFaC) asked me if I could live anywhere where would it be? Now as a proud native of New Orleans I was sad that I would consider anything outside New Orleans home.
Earlier this year that question really loomed with the statement made from another friend that in 3 years I would be 50. Thus began the crisis in earnest.
(note: for those non-metaphysical people out there you may want to skip forward a bit). I had this incredible feeling (urge) that I was to travel somewhere but I could not figure out where. Since not sure I went to visit someone who could help. The whole time I was there she kept saying… red.. bull….water… fortress castle.. then finally Alhambra. She asked me if I had ever heard of it (as she had not) and of course I had not either. She said this is where you have to visit. Where is it I asked..We found it on the Internet – Granada Spain. So here I am 8 months later.
When I got off the train late at night, I was enthralled! Granada is a city (big city) like the French Quarter. Small streets, alley ways, multiple cultures, old and new but ALIVE. I was- am in love. So DFaC I would love to live here, in Granada. (just need to work on my Spanish and telling of the time)
