2. Toledo

Long train ride from Barcelona to Madrid, followed by a commuter train to Toledo. The train goes through miles of nothing before reaching the city. Fumiyo was afraid the train was lost. The city of Toledo is another one of those places that look better in the guide book than in "real life." Their hotel, the AC Ciudad de Toledo was quite good, except for their laundry service. Laundromats, so common in France and Italy, appeared non-existant in Barcelona and Toledo so the travellers had to make due with the hotel's service, which promptly lost one of Cat's t-shirts and failed to dry any of thier clothes. It did have some good food, and Hotel Cigarreles next door had excellent trout and eggplant. Cat bought a wine skin in the historical centre- in preparation for the next restaurant that served wine to everyone but him.
