Zok and I took a train to Toledo - about 40 minutes away. The city was once the capitol of Spain- until 1561 (or so I read).
The city had all the same charms of a city this old; traditions such as mosaic tiles, ornate churches (synagogs, mosques...) famous residents (El Greco, the Visigoths), beautiful stonework, skulls, and a few gargoyles.
But the city was also muy, MUY, caliente without the refuge of large shaded lanes or fancy modern air conditioning that have saved me in Madrid.
Sombra Por Favor!
