the alhambra 2002

Looking across the Medina. This area looked as if an archaeological dig had recently finished and been back-filled. There was a lot of bare reddish-brown earth. All over the Alhambra people were repairing and restoring and maintaining. We guess that winter is a good time for this. Otherwise there are gardeners sweeping leaves and clipping foliage, but that must go on all year round.
