David has arrived in Granada. He finds the street where Daniel and his girlfriend Rosa live, and she opens the door. Rosa's sister Ana is also visiting and introductions follow. When Daniel comes home, they order pizza. During the next days, his friends join David for a visit to the Alhambra. (And David finds out that the American author Washington Irving spent three months there in 1829, to write "Tales of the Alhambra"). They also walk around the university (founded in 1531 and one of the oldest in Europe). Finally, they go up to el Mirador de San Cristóbal, a spectacular viewpoint that overlooks the city.
