... the cross on top of the mountain.
A drive by of Avela to see the 11th century city walls. Any film that needed a perfect old wall has been filmed here.
On to the Escorial, which was built by Phillip the second to get away from the crowds. It sia huge monastery and palace. We don't think Phillip was a lot of fun to be around. No photos inside but ...
... to the hilt. He reflected that Australians in his experience know more about Muslim culture and Arabic food than the Spanish even though 'we have been here for 700 years'. This with a smile, but I heard bitterness. He loved the expression 'no worries' that I offered him to add to his collection of Australianisms.
Jan and I wondered over lunch about our return home and resuming life in Woodend. This long journey has been and ...
... eat at an outdoor restaurante. We had "tapas" - which are portions of food that we all share. They ordered calamares (fried squid), fried pig (no idea what that is called in Spanish), olives, patatas bravas, and then the kids topped it off with un "helado" (ice cream). Molly thought the "calamares" were fried onion rings at first and was excited. I told her they werenīt onion rings, but I didnīt tell her what it was until after she tried ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kris Domenico Toledo
This is our second time to stay here. We first stayed here back in 2004. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the town of Toledo, beautiful views. The rooms are very clean and loved the large bathroom. They offered a delicious European breakfast with meats, cheeses and plenty more! Our triple room was 81 euros, which we found very reasonable for the luxury of the hotel.
