It’s January near the Sacromonte Caves Museum in Granada, Spain. The air is as warm as a summer’s day back home in the UK, without the humidity. We navigate the narrow paths around the hill, the Albaicín behind us, the […]
There are a lot of weird Chinese foods. I’ve heard of people eating scorpions, snakes and spiders in China. Truth be told, however, when we lived there for 3 years we didn’t see so much of these stranger foods. Admittedly, […]
It would be easy to visit Granada and never see the Albaicín quarter. There’s just so much going on in the Spanish city of Granada’s city centre. Flamenco shows with melodious guitar solos and dancers clicking their heels like hoof […]
