The moroccan guy who helped me yesterday saw me off at the bus stop. While we were waiting for the bus, my head was shaking from side to side. Because I was so tired and sleepy!!
At that time, he said to me.
You should pray for your self than other people.
The words touched my heart although I wasn’t quite awake.
That’s why I’m praying for my self recently like he said!!
When I was getting on the bus, I turned back and looked at him to greet him.
Then, he smiled and put his hands together and vowed to me. Maybe he prayed for my happiness!! The memory was carved to my heart.
As I was leaving Malaga, I saw his back leaving. So I prayed for his happiness as well.
About two hours later, I arrived in Granada a day late.
It’s my second time to come to Spain as I already visited Barcelona and Madrid on July.
Even though it’s not first time to come to Spain, I was excited! Because I was away from Spain for a while and Granada had a unique atmosphere compared to Madrid, Barcelona.
I contacted the host Jesus in Granada and met him.
We had a lunch and took a rest.
Later, he showed me around Granada.
Granada was fashionable, but compared to Barcelona, it’s more sophisticated &calm.
As Granada used to be occupied by Islamic kingdom, it’s enriched with an atmosphere of Islam and Europe. We could feel atmosphere we’d never felt in other European cities.
Walking around the city, he explained about the history and culture of Granada.Above all, I liked the story about Isabel and Columbus.
Let me explain about this story a little here. Is there anyone who’ve never heard the name of Columbus? Maybe no.
As everyone knows, he is a person who discovered American continent. And Isabel was a queen of Spain back then. She supported his journey and gave money to him for that.
According to what he explained to me, this statue above represented the scene in which Columbus asked Isabel to support him.
It was interesting and made me interested in Granada.
After exploring Granada, we ate tapas in the restaurant of Elvira street which was one of charcteristic picturesque street with many nice bars, restaurant. The name of this restaurant is La Bella y la Bestia.
