Stranded In The Southland

More Great Internet News!

Amazingly, when I sat down at a cafe today to catch up on stored e-mail, I discovered an open wireless AP. Yow, I love Granada!

Alas, Granada doesn't completely love me. We had an aggravating day yesterday trying to do laundry. The laundromat was closed early (as usual) due to the feira (fair). The cool guy at Hostal Lisboa sent us up to their companion hostal, a kilometer away, to do our washing. And drag the wet clothes back to HL. Fun. Then the drier at HL didn't work. We wound up with clothes strung all over the room.

Plus the place was incredably noisy -- the coughing guy kept it up half the night, and then switched to snoring. I'm sympathetic to anybody with a bad cold in a warm climate, but it still sucked.

We got up early this morning and searched out a better place, bought envelopes and other sundries for M., lunched, post-lunched with beer and Internet, and now, after nearly 24 hours in Granada have done nothing touristy. That's kinda weird, but I guess we needed a bit of a break.
