We started with a tour of the Generalife gardens, and then we visited the Generalife palace. The gardens and palace were used as a place to relax, since people couldn’t hop on a plane to take a vacation back then.
After that we toured the Alhambra. Although it was very intricate and colorful, I was expecting a bit more. I think this is because people kept telling me how amazing it was, so I had built up my expectations. And although it was really interesting, the tour lasted about four hours, and by the end we were all absolutely freezing, as well as hungry.
After the tour we had lunch and some free time to shop and then we headed home. We didn’t end up arriving home until almost nine. By the time we eat dinner is was about 11, and then I watched a movie with my host sister. Although I was exhausted when I went to bed, it was a pretty great weekend.
