Monday stroll through Granada - part 1

Remember in The Blues Brothers when Jake and Elwood drove around town with giant megaphone speakers on top of the car? You see that (or hear it) many times a day here. It seems to be one of the most popular forms of advertising. I'm listening to an advertising message right now as the car drives through Sta Lucia barrio ("Sta" is an abbreviation for "Santa").

Monday (yesterday), as Marcia took care of business here and there, JohnG and I spent the morning walking through Granada, grabbing photos and video.
