Alhambra is not a city in Southern California

The Alhambra is a complex of buildings; palaces, mosques, churches, fortifications, etc. set amongst gardens and placed, like a jewel above the city of Granada. It has the feeling of magic, and even in its most worn stones and faded decorations there is an incredible beauty. It's really a place you have to experience for yourself, but I've posted a Flickr photostream to give you a taste.

Lessons learned:

1. You cannot possibly enjoy everything at the Alhambra in under four hours. Plan on a week or more.
2. Turks think of their current president in much the same way that Americans regard theirs.
3. Sometimes the sky is as blue as it is in the photos.
4. Stonecarvers don't get paid enough.
