wow. today we traveled to Toledo by high speed train (only 30 min away). We were all scoping out rental properties in hopes that we could someday live there. A beautiful mix of architecture, landscape, and willingness of drivers to let timid touring teenagers :) cross the road has made Toledo a 'muy bueno' experience.

HIGHLIGHT: met Ignacio Mendaro Corsini, architect of the Archivo Municipal de Toledo (archive building). I loved listening to him describe his project, even though I don't speak spanish. It seems architecture IS a language of its own.

HIGHLIGHT # 2: the El Transparente (skylight in the middle of the Toledo Cathedral). I've never seen anything like it. If you're reading this now, you need to go see it...really, right now.
