On yet another coach trip (one of five I've taken in the last month), we were by now well-prepared for five hours of sitting still. The best way to do it is take lots of food and water, a charged phone, books, music and pee at every opportunity. I haven't travelled with anyone I can't be around for long periods of time, but I imagine that's best avoided too.

In other news, my camera is still broken, but here are some shots I took with my phone around the city:
|El paseo de los tristes - BEANS?!|
|Inside the Cathedral|
|Arab Baths - the old hammam|
|Museo de San Juan de Dios|
|Albaycín - the white houses are called Carmens|
|Dodgy shot of flamenco in a cave|
The best advice we got on going to the Alhambra was: book beforehand; put aside a whole day to go; take hats, food and more water than you think you need. We bought our tickets from an ATM outside a Caixa, and went by the town hall to get all the leaflets and maps they had from a very friendly lady.
