The rain in Spain falls mainly on Granada
06.03.2013 - 07.03.2013 16 °C
The weather as expected is still very unsettled here though Friday is due to be much better. There is a yellow weather alert as we're still getting the effects of the storm that battered the Canaries.
Mish is enjoying the school she's teaching at. The people have been really friendly and yesterday she got a lift back to the neighbourhood from her teacher contact there who is originally from Northern Ireland. Its about a 20-25 minute drive to her school and its mostly on the motorway.
The weather here can vary a lot - a week before we arrived there was snow lying in Granada itself, while the week before it hit 25c and sun.
However with having 3 weeks living here we don't have to rush around packing in all the sights in the space of just a few days.
It dried up yesterday evening and we went for a dander into town and had some tapas and beer. We then had more tapas in our apartment and I had some sauv blanc that cost only €1.78 a bottle and was surprisingly good. I've been using a proxy on the computer which has allowed me to watch BBC iplayer live TV and other programmes.
It's 11.16am on Thursday morning and Mish took the car today and drove to work - just got a text to say she arrived fine. I did about 3 hrs study yesterday afternoon and will do some more today and then go to the swimming pool at the leisure centre next door.
If it is much sunnier tomorrow I'll get a chance to go for a hike in the mountains near Granada - they're well signposted.
Talk soon - adios!
