leaving toledo and moving on

This morning we left Toledo, but we stopped for photos just before leaving for Talavera de la Reina.

Talavera was disappointing because we didn’t really see a lot of talavera around or even many ceramics shops that weren’t for sale/rent. We asked a guy at lunch about the missing talavera and he said that because of “la crisis” many people couldn’t stay in business and they were closing their shops. The ones that were open for business were closed for “siesta” (2-5PM) so we didn’t really see anything by the time we got into town and ate.  We DID see a few things though…

This was the back of a bench in the middle of a plaza. I really like the blue on white.

After Talavera we headed for Segovia. Segovia is so beautiful! There are Roman aqueducts still standing in the city and they are really breath-taking.

Also while we were in Segovia, Dad and I decided to indulge in one of the city’s famous dishes -cochinillo asado (roast suckling pig). It was kinda scary looking, but really good! I would recommend it to people that won’t get creeped out by a foot on their plate 😉

Tomorrow we head back to Madrid and I’ll move my stuff into my apartment soon! I’m going to stay with my dad at least tomorrow night, but I haven’t decided what to do afterward. We are going to explore my new neighborhood together Wednesday or Thursday, so that should be pretty cool!

Until next post…
