Saturday scenes and scenery: details from the Alhambra

The dismal events in Washington over the last week have left me eager to recall the beauties we saw last summer. The Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain was meant to offer the emirs of the Nazrid Moorish dynasty in the 14th century a glimpse of the heavenly paradise obedient servants of God might expect to win.
The details are exquisite.



 
Another time; such a different imperial sensibility...
