    Breakfast at hotel. On the bus by 9. A about an hours drive up curvy hills to the top to view the city and the Alh ambra ! Which means Red Castle. We had coffee in a little square which was so quaint. Continued walking on cobblestone streets while it was lightly raining. Drive down the hill and back up another hill to reach Alhambra. It was a huge Moorish Palace. It became a Christian palace. It had spectacular architecture. Carved wood and beautiful plaster designed walls and ceilings. Lovely gardens abound with ponds and flora. Lots of walking. Wether held up nicely. Back on bus around 2 headed for Seville. Only time for a meal at the Bus Service stop. We had the Burger special. Pretty good for a bus stop. Another 3-4 hours in the bus to arrive in Seville Melia Lebreros hotel at 7:30. Our new friend sue asked the front desk for dinner recommendations. We took a taxi to a wonderful restaurant El Rinconcillo. Tiny narrow cobblestones streets to get there. Went upstairs to our reserved table. Asked for a dirty martini. Sorry no cocktails. Ok, how about a martini, ok. Waiter brings a bottle of absolute vodka and a bottle of vermouth a glass with 2 huge ice cubes. Starts to pour the vodka, 3 inches, then he starts pouring in the vermouth! Poured so much, said ok that’s enough! The drink was horrible. Sue drank it, I changed to sangria. We ordered risotto with langostino as a shared appetizer. Delicious! Cristi & had lamb chops with patas and charred yummy mild peppers. Sue has the sea bass which she said was delish. Cathy has the Iberian steak. It came pretty rare. Sent it back and then it was really tasty. The bar called a cab for us. Got home by 11.Read more
