- Maybe you don't know, but the mate is a typical drink from Argentina. They say that if you are away from home, you miss Argentina with just a drink of Mate you feel like home. In today's episode we visit Granada. The Nasrid dynasty was the last Arab dynasty ruling the Emirate of Granada. The Alhambra complex was built under their rule. This place was a fortress, a palace and a small city. It is really special since it offer a new landscape completely integrated to the existing nature. These palaces are really amazing. Visiting them felt like getting into a three dimensional sculpture. The walls are full of details containing both Nasrid and Christian messages. There is so much to tell about these rooms that one episode is not enough. It's not in vain that they are the main exponent of the Nasrid art and one of the Muslim art jewels of all times. After enjoying Nasrid art in the palaces, I was captivated by the aroma of these spices and teas. Louisa herb, lavender flower, poppy and many others. I just wanted to take them all. One of the most special rites in Granada is to walk along the Darro river coast toward the slope of Albaicin neighborhood through the Paseo de los Tristes. It's poetic name pays tribute to the funeral procession that used to go to the cemetery behind the Alhambra. Today it is full of tapas bars and the place with such a nice energy that any sensation of sadness fades away where every nice memory appears. The best way to enjoy the Alhambra is to stay until the beauty of the sunset at San Nicolas viewpoint. Now we are ready to live the passion of Flamenco art and go enjoy the Spanish cuisine. Zoraya gardens is the place to live an all senses experience. We could treat ourselves to enjoy it from inside, cooking a typical dish with a culinary delights, the Iberian Prey. After being part of the cooking, I gratify myself by being part of the audience and enjoying one of the shows watching dancers show their talent in such a devoted way. I will stay dancing a little longer. See you next time. Ole.
