After a good nights rest & being able to sleep in, my roommate Kim and I made our way out the door. We decided to venture our way towards La Plaza de España. Today was a beautiful day, so I was actually able to take off my jacket for once. On our way to the plaza, we stopped at a small booth that was selling blanket scarves- 2 for $10 euros. I’ve recently started to take interest in them, so I went ahead & bought two (primarily for this weekend. It’s supposed to be very cold in Granada).
As we made our way to the plaza, we got the idea of paddle boating once we saw others doing it. The last time we were here we didn’t get much time, so we decided to go for it. To our surprise, it was only $6 euros per boat (which is a very good deal) for 35 minutes. I’m so glad we decided to do it- it was so peaceful, beautiful, and a bit of an arm struggle.
Today is the last Spanish holiday while I am here in Spain- el Día de los Reyes Magos: The day of Three Kings. Christmas may be over for most of us, but in Spain, the festive fun is just beginning! Traditionally speaking, children don’t receive their Christmas gifts until January 6th when The Three Kings (Los Reyes Magos) travel all over the country delivering presents 🎁.
As my stomach started to growl at me, we started to look for a place to eat. We ate at Taberna La Auténtica where I got potato chips & baked pork loin steak with cheese and sweet sherry wine sauce- so delicious!
Once we finished eating we took our time as we made our way back home. As it started to get darker, the beautiful sights of the city were hard to pass up, so we stopped to take some pictures.
After what seemed like a short day that flew by, we made it home for an early night since tomorrow we are going to Granada for the weekend. It will be an early morning as we will be out the door by 7 to make it to the bus station at 8am. To view the city of Granada click the link: The city of Granada
