Vistas de Toledo

In an attempt to dispel those wearisome post-holiday doldrums, I decided to put up a few pictures. I need to remind myself that I do, in fact, live in a pretty place – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, no less – even if there’s no beach in sight… sigh.

Enjoy these views of Toledo, I’ll be adding to this post as I take more pics.

View of the barrio of Santa Teresa, which isn’t usually all that scenic, but it was kind of pretty at sunset today when I took this snap on my way to the dentist

      I thought it might 😉 The first shot was taken from the cafeteria in the Alcazar, where you can still get a coffee and a bun for €2.20. Incredible! In the long month before getting internet at home, it was my office.

    When you live in a pretty place it’s easy to forget it and stop looking around you 🙂 BTW: I LOVE the panoramic view from the Alcazar!

    Beautiful. The autumn/murky river one is my fave. I was in Toledo on kind of a hazy day mid-spring and my photos are definitely not that crisp. Plus I used film camera, still, and then waited several years to develop 25 rolls, so the quality was not very good 😦
