Musings, Thoughts & Commentaries
We left Madrid early to stop in Toledo. I wanted to buy gold filigree bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces for Mailyn, Emily and Elaiza.
We walked around town -- quaint, narrow cobblestone streets. Waiting for the cathedral to open we had churros for breakfast at a small restaurant opening onto the street -- the girls liked a dog they met there.
Overwhelming experience touring the Catedral de Toledo to see the Virgen del Tesoro, the first statue of St Mary brought to Toledo in the 12th century and also Virgen del Sagrario and Virgen Blanco from the 13th century. We were issued a ticket for parking illegally.
We continued by car to Cordoba where we checked in to a lovely three-bedroom, two-story private apartment directly overlooking the Guadalquiver River.
