Day 4 in Madrid



Saturday we went to Toledo on the train. On the way to the station we passed this statue - not sure of its title but very striking. The whole works goes right around and looks like some sort of solidarity

Atocha Station, where we caught the train, is an irn and glass relic from the 19th century - with wonderful exotic plants and a huge turtle colony.
and here is Ian shopping - ha ha....
A couple of shots of Toledo - a very old walled city - we caught the tourist bus which drove us around and left us in the centre. Lots of tourists - I would hate to be there in the summer. You will have to turn your head or your computer on its side to see these next 2pics - I cannot turn them around in my eepc sorry.
finally - the train station at Toledo - pretty spectacular for a train station. The trains were all full - they must run even more in the summer.
more adventures later - I have managed to get a day behind.

Thanks for all the lovely emails about Max - we appreciate it. Max was Ian's big brother - apparently Ian is now the godfather of the family - yikes...

I somehow missed the post about Max and send you both my condolences. That statue is amazing and the railway stations are such beautiful buildings. Thanks for sharing your holiday sight-seeing with us.
