Dear Jill ,

I to you from Granada where everything to be going just fine; we nice and relaxed. We in a gorgeous hotel just down the road from the Alhambra, which an old fortress built by the Moors. It at the top of the hill just opposite our hotel and we can see this wonderful building through our window. It absolutely magnificent!

The hotel is lonely, but unfortunately it a lot to stay here! eating out is great. have you heard of gazpacho? Its a cold cucumber and tomato soup which they with oil, vinegar and garlic and it absolutely delicious.

Well, outside the sun so I'm off to get a bit of a suntan. I hope everything is OK back at home .
