This is in granada on a day when the mercury hit 38 degrees and we sought snactuary in a bar selling "granitados" - 'slushies'- exactly the right drink. there are 3 of us gremlins in the picture...
Maybe you want to see more...
Snac-tuary, now that's what I go to bars for. The photo reminds me of summer hols with the in-laws down Cadiz way. You can see the heat - that haze - the bleached out signs on the right. No reflection photo to post but I'm off to Telefonica's HQ tomorrow - plenty of glass and mirrors there. Maybe come back with something worth posting. Btw it's in the high thirties celsius in the Maki-office today (has been nearly all summer) I find the occasional cervecita also hits the spot!
Thanks for your interest Maki (if I may call you that) - it always amazes me that anything ever gets done in some parts of the world - we nearly melted last year when we were in Andalucia (but it was wonderful , especially the Alhambra visit - got to be done...)
You never get used to the heat. You sort of learn to live with it. I never understood just how great the siesta is until I came here. Now, I quite literally couldn't get through the day without it. In the end you just spend longer doing things. Spain is the least efficient country in the EU in terms of man hours vs. productivity and a lot of it may be down to good old inefficiency - but in their/our defence I will say that the climate doesn't help.The Alhambra is a must, couldn't agree more.Maki
Think i'd flounder in the heat -you can see why the football tends to kick off so late , think Barça even had a 10 p.m. kick -off last season. I don't think you can truly appreciate the value of the Siesta until you have spent some time in Spain - holidaymakers just get annoyed the shops are shut!
