It’s 8:00 in the morning and where are we? At a monastary. La Cartuja de Granada was formerly a Roman cemetery. In 1506 the Great Captain donated land to the monks so that they could build the Monastery.

Then we hopped on the bus for 3 hours and ended up on the coast in Marbella- Party Central in Andalucia. If only we had spent one night there. *sigh* We were, however, able to grab a meal and dance around in the beautiful water before we boarded the bus again.

After our meal we drove to Puerto Banús, a marina located in the area of Nueva Andalucía, to the southwest of Marbella, Spain on the Costa del Sol.  It is also scene to many exotic cars that are owned by international celebrities and wealthy owners that also own large yachts. Luxury cars like Rolls Royces and high end sports cars like Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Mercedes Benz are a common sight in the summer months around Marbella and Puerto Banus. Also, from this vantage point we were able to get an excellent view of the mountain in Gibraltar, our stop for tomorrow. We all indulged in some helado and enjoyed the scenery and good weather. Then we were off to bed.

Today was the day people officially started getting annoyed with each other and branching out to other people. I got tired of the constant waiting and indecision so I decided to hang out with Dahia and Lucea today. It was a welcoming and hilarious change.
