Another Trip to Toledo

Another Trip to Toledo

Toledo, Spain – June 5, 2010

Living in Madrid, Spain makes a visit to Toledo almost obligatory anytime we have guests. This time we took Leslie’s mom and aunt to see the city.

When we arrived, we were greeted with an awful lot of hustle and bustle. It just so happened that it was the weekend the city celebrated its Feast of Corpus Christi.  People were everywhere!

Colorful banners were everywhere.
What appeared to be a flea market.
A very festive day.
The Alcazar Building.

On this particular trip, we ended up taking a ride on the tourist train. It is Toledo’s answer to the double-decker tourist bus in other cities. The train literally took us around the outskirts of old town Toledo. We saw some sights from the train that we had never seen before.  It was definitely worth the price.

Our train awaits!
In case one is wondering, it was definitely warm enough to warrant the fans! On with the train ride!
