Tales of the Lecrin Valley

A personal view of life in an andalusian village.

I love walking around the Albaicin, Granada`s old city, and looking at things like door furniture, the different types of hinges, knobs and knockers.  I have a gallery which I will put on the blog one day, but for this entry I have some photos of street names and my translations of them.  I may well be missing the subtleties of the meanings, but here they are.  If you have any better translations, please let me know.  I am having trouble putting captions under the photo, but if you put the cursor over the picture the name will appear.
