Almost exactly eight years ago (in January 2006) I spotted Azar sitting on the sofa in front of my flatmate Peter’s laptop and reached for my camera. Later that year the pic became my first internet avatar when I started this blog. Anyhow, on Instagram they have a thing called Throwback Thursday (TBT) and people post old photos of themselves, or past travels, etc. And I remembered this photo as it recently came up on my friend Sledpress’s blog. Turns out it’s not only special because it features the love of my life, but also because it brought Sled over to casa az to check out this woman who had a black cat as an avatar, and thus our friendship began. Thanks Azar, you magical darling boy.

roommate leo granada

Two nights in Granada. First was at smart & chic RoomMate Leo in the centre of town. Next night was something completely different, at the splendidly elegant Hotel Casa 1800 at the foot of the Albaicín. I loved them both. Reviews will be coming up soon on Azahar Travels. Meanwhile, I think I need to invest in some more stylish luggage…

This is the most spectacular Rosa Belmonte. People who are fortunate enough to see her on my Flamenco & Tapas tour are very fortunate indeed.
