What I’ve Learned So Far

I have now spent two full days in the beautiful Granada Spain, and I have to say it has been a huge culture shock… a good one that is!  I could not have picked a more perfect place to live for half of the summer!

Here are some things I have learned so far:

  1. Everyone here is extremely beautiful and well dressed
  2. Public Displays of Affection are a normal and accepted thing
  3. You could lick the marble streets of Granada because they are so clean
  4. The University of Granada is considered an Ivy League of Europe
  5. Andalucia has national nap time (siesta) and literally everything is closed from 2-5 pm
  6. Granada is a young hippy town
  7. Granada means pomegranate in Spanish
  8. A discoteca beats any club in America
  9. You get free tapas with any alcoholic beverage purchased
  10. Granada has 250 days of sunlight
