Madrid is a great place. For friends who’ve lived there forever it’s like a small village.
J and I caught the train to Toledo.
Climbed up the tall Jesuit church overlooking the city. Trust me, it’s so much better when there’s no rain and it’s not blowing a gale, as when JP and I were last there.
The cathedral is pretty impressive, inside and outside.
Not actually my cup of tea, that particular cathedral as it feels quite sterile to me. Still, it’s impossible not to be impressed by many of the carvings and paintings.
And there’s always La Pepa, my favourite cafe there,
and the tourists being photographed for their wedding and in many other cliched locations.
Would I go back again? Yes! And Jodie, will she? Yes!
