23-24/OCT/2016 – the 2nd and 3rd day of our Spain 2016 round trip
Words and pictures
Sunday Full day in Toledo. Walking about more or less randomly but enthusiastically and with open eyes. We visited beautiful San Juan de los Reyes, church and monastery before heading for our apartment. All in all a very exciting and enjoyable day, despite all the day-tourists who sometimes overcrowded the narrow streets. All on their way to one of the major sights of Toledo, equipped with selfie-sticks and/or umbrellas. There was grey weather with frequent periods of rain. There were a few moments of sun. No problemo.
We have dinner at the local Spanish/Colombian restaurant, “El Gustazo Asador Pollos Platos Preparados”. A great experience with tasty homemade food served without any pretentions at all. The screening of an old Bruce Lee movie on a small TV added to the mood of the moment. That we liked the food is proven by the fact that had dinner there once again, on the last evening of our stay in Toledo.
Monday Another full day in Toledo with less rain than the previous day. We visit the Cathedral, impressive of course and the photos we shoot don’t make it justice. Good lunch at Café Delfín. I Mount the roof of the Jesuit church and am rewarded by great views of Toledo and surroundings. We again have an enjoyable day.
We learned that restaurant food is never served before 21.00. We actually knew but now we also understood.
