After almost 9 months of living in Madrid, we finally made it to Toledo today, and I honestly can’t understand why we didn’t go sooner! Although it took as long to get to the bus station from our house as it did to get to Toledo from Madrid, the journey was direct and cheap, and Toledo is charming and well preserved, if a little touristy. Plus it has a tourist train!!! We wandered round the narrow streets before meeting a friend of my boyfriends for a beer, lunch overlooking the river and free viewing of El Greco paintings. Needless to say, we will be back!
