The Old And The New: Tolmo Museum, Toledo

The Tolmo Museum in Toledo, just three minutes walking distance from my house, opened its doors to the public in October 2013. I love the eclectic “chronological mix”, spanning two millennia: The building, a beautiful medieval church, houses a modern art exhibition and there’s remnants of Roman baths in the basement, which can also be viewed.

        I now have a nifty rubber band and exercises to help strengthen so eventually I wake up able to walk instead of wake up having to limber up the ankle before attempting to do anything…

        Wish it was faster though! I wanted to walk all over Tokyo in 10+ days but looks like will still be doing my funny walking but not confident striding. 😦

        Ah yes, I know those rubber bands. Aw, shame about missing out on the full Tokyo walking experience. You’ll just have to compensate by eating more!

      Don’t ask… am having a pretty good time at the moment and so I just can’t find the impetus… let’s see how I feel after the summer. Unless my landlady manages to sell the place before then.

        Yes, they weren’t very exciting. There’s more of them beneath a building just across on the other side of the street, and that part is much better preserved/restored.

    ‘Like’ and am interested but typo alert 😉
    “opened its door so the public…” – you asked last time so I thought I’d do you the favour this time. I’ve only had 4 glasses of wine, 2 Jevers and a mild panic attack. You’re welcome.

        Go pee. In the toilet. If you’re that worried, don’t flush and leave it till the morning. As a friend of mine is fond of saying “if it’s yellow, let it mellow” 😉

        Good. Have another bottle.

        According to Linda (who went for a mad hunt after I queried it), it’s a validated component of Barbadian English…

        Personally, I think it’s a typo of “titchy”.

    Me imagino que no fotos dentro del museo, pero cómo eran los baños romanos?
    Btw, maybe you would like to check out a fun “challenge” I began today, Texture Tuesday, which is what… 90% of your photos? 🙂 hope you play!
    Have a great day!
