The trip left for Granada as planned and on time. Lunch break provided everyone with a good range of food and sufficient time within which to eat lunch and relax before boarding the Coach to continue to Guardix to stop for an hour to explore an authentic, lived in Cave house.
We arrived at the hotel at about 5pm and obtaining keys was dealt with quickly and easily. photo

Quick trip to our rooms and back to the bar for some liquid refreshment and a chat before the evening meal.

The dancing was authentic and technically correct - which was more than could be said for the seating arrangements - the organisers would choose a different venue next time.
Day 3 we did an interesting trip to the Sierras and enjoyed having plenty of free time in Granada.
