Saturday - A guided tour around Madrid seeing the statue of writer of Don Quotoe. Jackie sniffed out a bargain and got a lovely scarf for €7. Saw palace of Madrid, and location of old city.

About an hour drive to Toledo, the original capital of Spain. The king relocated to Madrid, mainly to be remote from the religious leadership. Toledo is a hill-top city, with a river/creek on three sides. A historic city that has been ruled by Christians, Jews and Arabs over the last 1300 years, with each living peacefully... at times.

Passed the Bull Fighting Ring in Madrid where they are playing the Davis Cup Semifinal, hopefully there’s not a bad reaction if Spain loses...
