The best weekend afternoons start like this:
Maria: Do you want to have lunch tomorrow?
Me: What kinda lunch?
Maria: Whatever happens to come with the drinks.
It’s very hard to argue with that. So for lunch we went. It lasted from 2pm till 10pm. Interspersed by a street theatre performance on Town Hall Square.
Lucía’s luminous drink
Pimientos de padrón. These are small green peppers, deep-fried, salted, totally addictive.
Toledo Cathedral lit up, and a sea of people waiting for the performance to start.
The performance included several eardrum-busting explosions, which sent clouds of dust and feathers up into the air. This is the back of a giant screen the performers used to project images onto.
Maria in the midst of the feather storm. Either that, or we’re having a bloody good pillow fight…

“I must say, you do look a bit silly up there…”
“Speak for yourself, Pink Socks!”
“Giving me the silent treatment, huh?!”
