Spain Part 2

On Saturday the 8th we visited Alhambra in Granada.  This is an old palace and fortress that was built in the 14th century by Moorish rulers.  It was really impressive and massive.  By the end of the day we were ready to just leave even though we didn't see everything.  It just became too much after a whole day of wondering around it. 

That night we ate at a restaurant that had an amazing garlic soup and many pig legs hanging from the ceiling.  The pig legs is the Iberian Ham, the best ham I have ever had.  

That night we wondered around old town again and took some night picutres of Alhambra.

On Sunday the 9th we drove again, this time to the coast and then to Sevilla.  We stopped in Nerja to see the coast.
 We also stopped in Ronda to visit an impressive gorge. 

And eat some rabbit paella, that included the whole rabbit.

Then we finally made it to Sevilla.  That night we ate tapas and were actually able to watch the Chiefs in their playoff game!  It was a upsetting end but we are still pretty please we were able to watch it, at a bar named Tex Mex.
