a look back to yesterday's viewpoint




a look back to yesterday's viewpoint





across the river valley from where we first laid eyes on the Alhambra, we now found ourselves on the premises of this gigantic complex of palaces and gardens. to get there, we had put ourselves through a true monday morning start of the week, having the alarm set for 7 - after reaching the hotel a bit later than we had expected.

our trip started on the 23rd of august, just days after the spanair jet had crashed in madrid. we had booked easyjet to get from geneva to malaga, far more affordable than flying swiss from zurich... well, we got to geneva just fine, only getting slightly wet when changing trains in biel. checked in, got to our gate and waited. and waited. and waited... at some point, people started pointing out an airplane on the runway, with the chutes down and some rescue vehicles with flashing lights around it. so after a while, we were told that there had been an emergency landing and that the airport was temporarily closed... no incoming and no outgoing flights. all around us families, mostly british, waiting to get home from their vacation, trying to understand what the heck those "frenchies" were saying in "english" over the speakers. well, to cut this part of the story short, while other flights got cancelled, ours had had to land somewhere else but did eventually come pick us up and took us to malaga. delay: roughly 3.5 hours, meaning we got there around 21:30 instead of 18:00.

we had planned to go straight from malaga to granada the night we arrived, by rental car, to the hotel we had reserved. well, the regular rental car office at arrivals was closed. so it took us an eternity to find the other one, "behind the scenes", despite theoretically understanding the people and talking to them... you should see that airport parking...

so after I talked that rental car lady out of giving us a monstrous car (upgrade is the word), we were finally on our way, sometime after 11 if I remember correctly.

next up: trying to get something to eat and drink at that time. didn't get a chance at the airport and had a hard time finding something open along the highway. eventually got some coffee and were well on ourway. got to granada at 1am or so and from then on, it only took us about half an hour to find the hotel - despite some map print-out/description of the way. the latter is not very helpful when it refers to street names that are nowhere to be seen.

so we got there at 01:30 and the receptionist greeted Des by her full name - magic ;-)











Spain - Granada (Beauty and the Beast I)




Spain - Granada (Beauty and the Beast I)





A captive Saker Falcon (falco cherrug) and handler – thanks to Pieter from Spanish Nature for identification! Taken at the Parque de las Ciencias (Science Park) in Granada. We were recommended to check out a "flight show," and what a show it was! Several raptors at arms length. Unfortunately my Spanish wasn't enough to understand the handlers' explanations.

This is easily one of my all-time favorite photographs I've taken. I like the stark contrast between the beauty and the beast - yet they both exhibit a similar intense demeanor. Although the falcon was hooded so it wouldn't get too stressed with all the people around him, it was alert and ready to go the second the hood was removed.

Magnificent beast!
