Last Day in Granada
Tomorrow will be my last day in Granada, and today is my last full day.
Tomorrow I have my final exam at 10AM. Following the test, ISA is having pizza for us one-monthers. Back to the apartment after that to make sure I have everything packed and ready to go for my train ride Thursday night. The train departs Granada at 9:55PM Thursday night and gets into Valencia at 5:05AM Friday morning.
I was able to contact Paqui, the woman I am renting from, and she’ll be meeting me at 9AM Friday, so I’ll be waiting around in the train station for a good 3 to 4 hours. Fun! It’s surprising to me that the two times I have spoken with her on the phone, I have been able to understand what she says and have her understand why I say. It’s kind of a confidence booster.
I made it up to the El Mirador de San Cristóbal (a vantage point) in the Albaicín neighborhood of Granada. Click below to see some of the photos I took:
After the bus ride down into the heart of the city, I checked out Plaza Isabel La Catolica again. It’s been the meeting place for group tours and whatnot.
I’ll surely miss my senora and her cooking. Having the equivalent of a three course meal during lunch and dinner was near tiring, but I know before too long, I’ll be craving her egg and noodle soup, bean soup, noodle soup, and vegetable soup (I’m sure I forgot some). She is a phenomenal cook, especially with soup, if you couldn’t tell. Tonight for dinner we had hamburgers (pork burgers, so in a way they were hamburgers) with eggs on top with french fries as a side. She said she always eats hamburgers with eggs on them. She’s my kind of woman, mixing foods like that.
The memories of Granada are awesome to have. I hope to make it back to Granada someday and see things old and new, interesting and absurd, just as I did this January. Hopefully next time there won’t be any broken shower curtains.
