May 15, 1969 Toledo, Spain

Toledo, Spain.  And no, it is not pronounced 'Toe-lee-do".

Calle y torre de Santo Tomé, ToledoOur first stop is St. Thomas Church, which dates to the early 14th century.  Next up is the Primate Cathedral of  Saint Mary of Toledo, also dating to the 14th century,is a Roman Catholic Church in the Gothic style.  Then it is on to the Transito Synagogue, again a 14th century building.  They are shown in the same order as the text below.

Lest you think we only visited religious buildings, we also went to El Greco House Museum.

I bought a Damascene bracelet that I have not worn in ages, but I still have it.

Actually, it is quite lovely.  Not sure what I paid for it, but my expenses for the day totaled $16.73.  I also think I bought something as a gift for someone.  And I mustn't forget all the postcards I bought and mailed.

I made mention that on the way back we had a view of the Alcazar from the cliff.  Quite possibly we went by bus as there is a note of paying for tours on an expense record a few days later.

  4. Just amazing architecture and so very old. I love the different style from Paris to Toledo...you can tell right away. You seem to be right on track with your $10 per day. I love that bracelet.
