Seville

We got up, ate, cleaned up and checked out – this hotel was very nice. We walked by Iglesia San Marcos (it wasn’t open). We walked over to Convento Santa Paula. We walked back to the hotel to use the washroom and then walked on to San Lorenzo y Jesus del Gran Poder (on the […]

Madrid

After cleaning up and breakfast we got a cab to go out to Glorieta of San Antonio de la Florida, which is decorated inside wiht frescoes by Goya celebrating the miracles of St. Anthony. The place is uninteresting on the outside, but the frescoes are amazing! The main scene in the rotunda ceiling portrays the […]

Toledo

We got up early, showered, ate breakfast, and then looked for a taxi. And looked. And looked some more. We had to try three places for over a half hour to get a cab down to the train station Estacion Atoche – there’s a large tropical garden with standing water and lillies; its very humid […]

We got up a little late and slow, grabbed breakfast in the hotel, cleaned up and skipped out to a local travel agent to get tickets for the AVE (high speed) train to Toledo tomorrow (30 minutes – can’t beat that); of course, it took almost an hour to get the tickets because friends of […]

We’re staying at the Best Western Premier Hotel Santo Domingo. The room is small but inexpensive – they claim they have wireless internet […]

Visited Nathan this weekend

This weekend Aviva and I went to Detroit, a dying city. We went to the naming ceremony for the daughter of a cousin of Aviva’s – it was a very nice ceremony. Saturday I got to see Nathan – as you can see from this picture, he looks a lot like his dad: Nathan is […]
