Granada- Day 7

Let me start out this post with a word to the wise. Charge. Your. Camera. Battery. I thought that 2/3 full would sustain me and I was wrong so I’m very sad to say I don’t have as many pictures of the Alhambra in Granada Spain as I would like. However I was wide awake for our two hour bus ride from Málaga to Granada so got some countryside shots. After a 3 and a half hour tour we went into the city center and tapa hopped (grabbing 1 or 2 tapas at different restaurants). Then it was back to the bus for another little tiger snooze!
