Granada will always have a special place in our hearts. The winding cobblestone streets, painful to walk on for hours on in, but just too quaint and reminiscent to ignore! Our airbnb apartment was in the heart of the Al-baycin, the old Arabic quarters, where our eyes were charmed with greenery, bougainvillia, churches and smiling faces. Visiting the first mosque in Granada, which was a dump site over 30 years ago, looked like a garden of paradise! We loved seeing local Spanish culture and architecture beautifully melding with Islamic symbols and calligraphy, reminding us of our visits to mosques in Beijing and Nanjing a few years back.
Ahh, Granada, your peaceful and welcoming demeanour will be missed!

The Granada Mesquita grounds with the best view of Alhambra.
Met some Spanish-Muslim students who turned out to be fashionistas in disguise!
Our favourite meal throughout the whole trip turned out to be a traditional Moroccan dish of meat balls and another eggplant, lick-your-lips vegetarian dish.
I designed and made this maxi cardigan with my talented mama!
