kinda pretty, isn't it?
We also went to Toledo a couple weeks ago. I thought I'd squeeze this in now since I'll shortly be updating about my INCREDIBLE weekend in Lisbon, Portugal...

So yea, Toledo was...pretty lame. We went for a day trip and had a tour guide that basically talked our ears off the whole time. She was young and nice but I really just hate going on organized tours. I don't care how nice you are. The city has a lot of history as the old capital of Spain, so I mean yea, it was pretty. El Greco also spent a lot of time here so I had the opportunity to see a bunch of his works. One thing I DID like about the city was its abundance of marzipan. Obviously I bought some - it was cute and shaped like an empanada but filled with an apricot preserve.

We spent the day dragging ourselves through the city, touring the cathedral, etc. etc. Nothing too special. Look at the pictures, k?
