Sorry I’ve been so quiet guys! I’m working on a couple of long posts for you and long posts take long. Long. Here’s some weird stuff and cool stuff while we wait for a long post. Weird stuff first!
For your safety, when watching a Semana Santa procession, do not sit on any X’s.
I wonder how amazing everything is this store is?
Speaking of friking amazing, look at all of these olives! The Spanish are pretty crazy about their olives. I kinda am too. Olives are served with tapas and served gratis when ordering an alcoholic beverage! I stopped to take this picture and an old Spanish man laughed at me. I am 100% ok with that.
Shirt at a touristy shop but it’s funny and I loved it.
A… successful cross-species grafting?
Right. So… what exactly is this man doing to this goat? You know what makes me barf up water? Raw squid.
I heart moustache papi. (shudder)
“Hueeeerrrrrrgh!” is what I imagine he’s saying.
Instead of swallowing your mail, this much more pleasingly rendered lion is barfing water at you. He’s kinda got a 1000 yard stare from being dehydrated. Know what makes a lion barf water? Uncomfortably close naked men standing behind you.
You may know that I now suffer a ramen affliction after eating ramen in Japan, meaning that every moment I am not putting ramen in my face I am suffering. I’d be surprised if you didn’t know that I am also affected by that virus that makes you love cats. I’ve now found that there’s a whole “thing” with cats and ramen. I have a cat/ramen sticker on my computer from this friking cool a.f. place: Big Sumo. Also, if you need a sticker of a whale bus or a soy sauce dinosaur, this is your place.
I did not know that Granada is Spanish for pomegranate. That certainly explains all of the pomegranates I saw all over Granada. These are their pylons.
Cistern of the cat. Cryptic, as I actually saw no cisterns nearby.
I did see this opposite the cistern sign though. Dos gatos.
Not pictured here, because sometimes I’m a dope and I miss out on a good picture, is Cafe 4 Gatos. It was pretty close to the previous gato locations. I ate there for breakfast one day and it was great. Earlier I had walked past the place and I kid you not, there was an actual wizened old elf sitting in front of the cafe. I really wanted a picture of him but it felt rude to ask so he’s burned into my memory. He was wearing green clothes, round black rimmed glasses, and a pointy hat. Totally not kidding. He had a white beard also. He was talking to a hippie chick. Maybe he was granting her wish for more patchouli in her life or to give her permanently purple pit hair. Do elves grant wishes? I so totally don’t care.
Know what’s better than 4 cats? 7 cats. Granada loves them some cats. Perhaps this is another reason I loved the city so much.
Alllllll over Granada in the narrow winding streets/footpaths are these stone mosaics. Beauty everywhere, even underfoot.
Anyway, quick filler for you while I work away on other things! Much love.
La camisa que acabas de comprar tiene pelotas de caballo.
