2nd day in granada.. n we're having so much fun. walking around the historical city is fun on its own, but with kebabs all around the corners.. this is heaven.. haha and its cheap too. today we visited an old colony of early spanish settlement called albayzin, which is litterally beside the alhambra, seperated by a river.

Strategically located, on a hill, it's is protected by the alhambra fortress.. looming up high on the hill. albayzin is all white, all real, all old, all spanish houses, buildings, school, all breathing alive community.

visited their moning market, and took plenty of pictures... as it's a friday, we prayed friday prayers at a masjid next to our hostel, which doesnt look like a masjid at all (surprised to know a masjid is next to our hostel all along) although small, its beautiful n nice. the khutbah, unfortunately is in spanish, and arab. thus i spent exhaustively tonnes of energy not to fall asleep hehe..
hehe later we shop around, eat kebab.. and check out hostel to go our last stop, malaga, which took a few good hours.. by bus
