Although there is much public controversy on Michelle Obama's choice to vacation in Southern Spain with her nine-year-old daughter, Sasha, and friends, we must admit it is a fabulous destination.  Here are a few highlights of their trip:

Wednesday, Day one:  Mother and daughter (along with security and friends) strolled along the cobbled streets of old town Marbella stopping at small shops.

Thursday, Day two:  Michelle and Sasha’s next stop was Granada. They walked around and visited the Alhambra Palace in Albaicin. The 16th century cathedral is famous for its narrow winding streets and small squares. The Obamas also grabbed some ice cream from a parlor on the main street Gran Via. Later in the evening Mrs. Obama saw a Flamenco show in the Old Sacromonte.

Friday, Day three:  Security closed off a public beach in Marbella outside of the Villa Padierna Hotel, where the Obamas stayed, so Sasha and her friends could enjoy a little sun.

Saturday, Day four:  Mrs. Obama pays a trip to the town of Ronda and visits the House of the Moorish King. 

Sunday Day five:  Michelle Obama and daughter, Sasha, end their trip with a visit to Mallorca to lunch with Spain’s Royal family.
