The Rose of Granada.

So... my adventure continued and after long time driving my way brought me south of Spain in a heart of Andalusia... Granada, this word was heard in my head like an echo of old legends or romantic novels where true love and tragic death joined together... Granada... Alhambra... the Garden of Generalife, these words turned my mind into the depth of history, and I expected my meeting with those wonders with impatience...

 

Next morning as soon as I could I was there looking forward to meeting with something magical...

I will not tell you here about amazing moorish architecture with fantastic stone laces but when I got in the garden, I felt myself like in fairyland of flowers... A lot of roses by all kinds and colors surrounded me... And among all roses suddenly appears a miracle, the brightest rose, the beautiful girl in yellow andalusian dress and rose in a hairs. I couldnt resist to my wish, forgot the politeness and asked: ”What is your name, beauty?” I forgot that I’m in Spain and she probably doesn’t speak any English, but she answered: “I guess, you know my name. My name is the same as the name of these flowers - Rosa...” She smiled, turned to other person who asked her something and forgot about me...

 

Later I understood that she probably entertained the people there and her appearance was just work, or theatrical play... but so beautiful play...
