I have thoroughly enjoyed sending out these postcards over the last week or so. Although this is not exactly a tourist-picture blog, I couldn’t not share my view of the place with you. And what is the modern day tourist but an evolved avatar of the earliest French flâ
neur? I know that I was one, as I walked the streets of Granada for four days, quietly observing, recording and tying the threads together to weave the whole story. I think , and I hope you’ll agree, that these postcards all stitch up the fragments of the picture into a rough whole – and that picture would be incomplete without this last set of images that showcase in pithy snippets the grand Alhambra
, the Moorish icon of Granada – its seed, its raison de’ê
tre, its claim to fame. And you will perhaps see why, in these last set of postcards from Spain.
That’s it from Spain! Like I said in my previous post
, there’s a whole lot of new stuff waiting to happen here – and an exciting announcement that I’ll make next week!
Thank you all for the terrific response to these postcards – I have loved every moment of putting these together. And again, thanks to every one of you who has given me your very valuable feedback and encouragement since I first launched this blog six months back. It’s come a long way since then and it has a very long way to go.
