Pretty sore today, ankle especially. Paco, Susana and Peque aren't coming over because they went to a wedding yesterday and are staying somewhere for the weekend.  We had breakfast and relaxed for an hour or so and then left with Filo and Pepe (Julie went somewhere else) to go walk around some more hahah.  They brought us to the Albaicin and we walked around outside the Alhambra and a little bit on the inside too. Just like last time when you first enter the Albaicin theres a couple of bridges, one of which is known for having lots of cats in it. Pepe remembered something about my liking cats and was on the lookout all day for them. hahah anytime we'd see one he'd be like "lets go get one! bring it home and it can sleep in your room every night!"  haha he just knows me so well already ;) The view and the architecture in the Alhambra was gorgeous and we even went inside a little art museum to see sculptures and paintings that were so life-like it was incredible.  After we walked out of the Albaicin, we stopped at a tapas bar called los diamantes (diamonds) and it was packed full of people.  Literally, we could not move, it was so tight, but they said it was a good place so we stood packed in like sardines and had drinks with tapas.  This time the tapas were little clams in garlic and olive oil.  They were pretty good but it was hard to stand in that crowd for so long and do anything at all.

As if we didn't do enough walking yesterday, we walked another 12km in the Albaicin which is roughly 7.5 miles, not including our walk to the tapas bar and then back home :P Needless to say, I'm paying for it a bit and trying to stay off my feet as much as possible.
