Walking Granada's brightly painted streets (they'll be shown in another post!), the colonial period wealth of this former capital city are clear.
Whilst redevelopment of the main drag points to a future shaped around sanitised tour-group travel and faux-Irish bars, wander down the market street and you'll find yourself in the chaotic nerve-centre of town. Watch and shoe repair men, pot-bellied ladies selling fruit and cakes, wily octogenarians who always give you the wrong change and more than a few dodgy looking characters. Each of them trying to earn a living one way or the other.
These are the people we saw.
