El Camello Revisited

I’m not really much of a “food blogger” since I’m not a pretentious snot, but I figured I should post these images of the delicious dishes we had at El Camello today.

We’ll start with an appetizer of pita and hummus:   Next, we have the Chicken Satay:   Here we have my favorite, Chicken Shawarma:   Aaaaand a Felafell Ball Sandwich:   Added bonus…a few other pics I took while...

Hotel el Internacional

Hotel el Internacional

This is the first time we’ve stayed at a hotel in Granada. Since we were in it for the long haul last time we were here, we always stayed in rented houses. There are many hotels in Granada, of course, ranging from top notch luxury right on the main drag La Calzada, to more quint establishments a bit off the beaten path.

We got a full day pass for all three of us for $15. Additional good news is that they have a bar. And ducks. So while Levi swam we kicked back a few Victoria Classicas and tried to feed the ducks, which appeared to both please and anger them at the same time....
