More from Toledo

Toledo is an old city (dating back to the Bronze age) located basically smack dab in the middle of Spain. It is extremely famous for its pottery and weaponry -- quite the contrast if you ask me. We received a knife set from Toledo as a wedding gift from some of Andrew's family and those mini-kitchen-swords are amazing.

This is the lamp for the priest's crossing when he went to the cathedral. Apparently he wasn't supposed to get wet so they built him this passageway to the monastery. Talk about high maintenance.

Some Mallorcan pearls

Only one more weekend of sightseeing and traveling before I return to the States. Then I look forward to seeing what kinds of ancient history Target and Starbucks have to offer.
