Today after classes joya, amanda and I ate outside at a cafe in Plaza Nueva right by the center. There is literally not a single cloud in the sky today, and the sun hitting my back felt soo soo good. I had a cafe con leche which I got to enjoy while soaking up some uv rays, joya and I split a tostado con pollo (slive of french bread toast with chicken breast on it and gobs of thousand island dressing), and then we all shared an order of churros y chocolate. As I said in my last post, when the sun comes out so do the locals ... so we got to listen to some live music while enjoying our cuisine, I felt like I was in a movie! Granada has such an eclectic vibe to it, on our left was a table of hippie kids with dreads and a too-cool to care aura about them splitting some pizza and cafe, and to our right was an average looking couple enjoying some brewskis (beers) while their little corgy-mix dog (with two dread locks on each ear) waddled around from table to table looking for more shade. It was nice to sit back, be warm, enjoy some yummy comida, and people watch. I am so ready for it to officially be warm outside all the time, spring can't get here fast enough in my opinion.
Right now I'm in the process of booking hostels and Alhambra tickets for Csenka's arrival tomorrow!! And also working out the details for Carnaval next Saturday, which is a huge costume party, more about that later :)
