Flashback: Toledo

April 6, 2006 § 2 Comments

  • We rented an Opel from Avis.  It was the size of my closet.
  • The boy really loved driving it, though.  It had pep.
  • I finally go to see one of those toros on the side of the road.
  • This Toledo is sooooo much better than the other Toledo.
  • They have outdoor escalators to take you into the city (on a hill).
  • There’s a fucking McD’s in the middle of Plaza Zocodover.  It’s a medieval monument, damn it!
  • I took some illegal pictures in the cathedral.
  • Unfortunately I couldn’t get one of the transparente, which is probably the closest thing I’ve ever had to a religious experience, but this person did!
  • The time changed forward by one hour.  No one in the entire country mentioned this to us.
  • We bought tickets for a touristy train ride.  We were an hour late.
  • We caught the next one.  It was worth it for about 10 minutes.
  • They love mazapan.
  • It’s a tad bit touristy.
  • Toledo is famous for it’s armor and sword crafstmen.
  • Numchucks!

    That Opel looks like a Corsa, which is called a Vauxhall Corsa in the UK… f’realz! All Opel’s are called Vauxhall, and to confuse matters, they are both owned by GM

    Yes, it was a Corsa! It was much cheaper to rent than the Mini Cooper. That is really confusing, too. I like the fact that all the cars there are small. So much more efficient.
