2008-06-11 (Granada, Spain; full day at Alhambra) - 459
Wow - our day at the Alhambra. This was without a doubt one of the most amazing and beautiful places I've ever been; every bit as cool as the books and TV programs made it out to be. I started with WeatherGirl in the Alcazar (the military end of the complex), zoomed through the public baths, hiked out to Generalife (the royal gardens), and ended in the Nasrid palaces (the palaces of the Muslim rulers, and the most famous parts of the Alhambra). An amazing, overloading, hot, sweaty, wonderful day. Whew.
