Sooo this was sometime ago but I went to Granada with my program CIEE. I was super excited to see my best friend in the world Liasor Dima who is studying there! I was so excited that I barely slept the night before, but I slept the entire 5 hr bus ride. When we arrived I got to see Liasor aka BFF and he was walking to meet me at the hotel. I ran up to him and gave him a huge hug. I was so nice to see him because I came to Spain in August and school had ended at the beginning of May. So I had’t seen him much since last May. So for a year now I’ve barely seeen my best friend and it’s awful. After seeing him I realized why we are best friends and that I miss him. So after meeting up, he met my friends Jenna, Kelly, and Erica and we went to get some tapas for lunch. At 3:30 he went to see the Alhmabra with his group. The Alhambra is the most famous place in Granada and is one of many royal palaces in Spain but is really breath taking and unique. It has Muslim influence and an extensive garden on top of a hill. At 4pm we had a tour of the city and it’s famous historic parts. After we both were done with our tours we met up again. I took a taxi to where he was living and for the life of me I couldn’t remember the street name.. it was Mendez Nunez but I did have the Calle Rhonda down. So I arrived and met his roommate and saw where he lived and we went to dinner. It was a Friday in Lent so I couldn’t eat meat and in Spain that’s the worst thing eeverrr especially when you don’t really like fish. So I ordered what I thought would be a fish fry haha nopeeeee it was literally fried fish of all sorts from fish to squid to sardines to I’m not really sure what. Needless to say I didn’t really eat that and never actually ate dinner. We went to a bar for a little while to meet up with my friends and his friends and then to a club. This club was kinda far away from the city center so we had to taxi it up there. It was a really cool place though. It was across from the Alhambra and there were caves in the bottom and tunnels with colored lights and music of all types. One part had Spanish music and the other part had today biggest hits music. There was a huge patio outside that was really nice when it got too hot inside. It was a good time. The weirdest thing everr happened… there was a male stripper in the club and apparently it was a new thing for this club and it got a little crazy. Soooo we left. But it had amazing views of the Alhambra at night. The next day at breakfast I was starving and ate soo much. We went off to the Alhambra for our tour and BFF got to sleep in. It was amazing and there is something called “El Mirador” that was like a lookout over the city and it was such a beautiful view butttt we had to walk down the big hill and it sucked. It was cobble stone streets but I got to meet up with BFF again and have lunch at BK. We walked around and he showed me a park and we bought matching Espana bracelets. And even though I got little sleep, it was a great 2 days and I am so happy I got to see my best friend and can’t wait for Senior year!
Granada-Where my best friend is!!!!
