My Vacation...Somewhat

Since I'm not sure how my whole internet situation is going to be this next week (our tour of Andalucia), I'm going to give all of you a rundown of how the trip is going to pan out so that you have a bit of an idea if I can't blog to tell you all about it.

Tuesday: We leave. We see La Mancha (windmills!) and Cordoba (Mezquita, Jewish Quarter), then go to Sevilla to spend the first of two nights.

Wednesday: Day in Sevilla (maybe we'll see Tom Cruise...he's filming there right now). Roman ruins, cathedral, Alcazar, Maria Luisa Park, and Barrio do Santa Cruz. That night...FLAMENCO SHOW! Ole!

Thursday: Travel to Gibralter where we get to go to the Rock : ) Shopping during the afternoon, then head for Torremolinos for the amazing hotel (so we're told) for two nights.

Friday: Free Day. My guess is that we'll spend it all on the beach. But that's just a guess.

Saturday: Travel to Granada. Visit Cathedral, Royal Chapel, tombs of Ferdinand and Isabella, shopping in Alcaiceria. At night we have a nighttime tour of the Arab quarter for "views of the Alhambra illuminated by night." (Yes, that's quoted from the itinerary)

Sunday: Tour of Alhambra and Generalife palaces. Return to Madrid to spend the night.

Monday: Head to airport to head back HOME! I can't remember what time our flight leaves. I'll get back to you on that...

This week has been great, and I feel really good about my grades. I am so ready for a week of relaxation before home!

Hasta luego!
