Things We Love About Granada — II/II

Alhambra panorama

  • Our Spanish neighbors, tremendously generous, helpful and hospitable
  • Excellent fish, fruit and produce
  • Paellas and barbecues on the terrace over wood fires
  • Good sports facilities in Granada and most of the towns & villages
  • Spacious and beautiful countryside for all outdoor pursuits
  • Granada kid and lamb
  • The lifestyle. Not as “relaxed” as you might think, as we both work, but not as insane as in other places
  • Advanced attitudes on issues like human rights, freedom of speech, equality, abortion, social justice
  • The roads. We didn’t realize how good they were till we visited the United States
  • The way Spaniards hold their drink. In 40 years in Granada we haven’t seen a punch-up.
  • Our  artist and writer friends
  • Always changingl morning and evening mountain light
  • Poetry readings, book presentations, art exhibits
  • Historic architecture, including the Alhambra
  • Coffee/coffeeshops/breakfasts
  • Professional waiters
  • The outdoor markets
  • Gardens
  • The way Spaniards cherish children
  • Nearby car trips
  • Old-fashioned fruit: quince, medlars, madrones…
  • Semi-tropical fruit: mangos, loquats, avocados, love apples…
  • The morning glories
