Our Day in Toledo, Spain

Just outside of Madrid, about 30 minutes by train there is a city that dates back to 200 BC (bronze age) called Toledo. It became well known as a place where Moslems, Jews, and Christians lived peacefully for many years. The streets are like a labrynth, and all laid in stone and rocks. El Greco, the famous painter from the 1500's spent much of his life here painting. Funny, Ada and Ethan could care less about any of that. They were far more interested in the playground. Nevertheless, we had a great time there.
