¡Hola a todos y Feliz Navidad! ‘Tis the season to get into the holiday spirit, and Granada has really been showing off with beautiful lights adorning every street and dulces de navidad in every bakery window. While a part of me can’t help but feel a little homesick during this time, it’s hard not to feel festive when everywhere you turn, the streets are brightly lit and mercados de Navidad are in full swing!
