March 5, 2023. This is the Alcázar in Toledo, Spain, as seen from the spire of a nearby church (131 steps up inside the Iglesia de los Jesuitas (San Ildefonso)). Toledo is maybe a half-hour ride in the high-speed train from Madrid, which I took in the morning. I booked a room in the Hospedium Hotel Posada de la Sillería, which I mention by name only because it was so nice; I was still suffering quite a bit from illness and itching but the room was like a cool oasis. Through two walks in the afternoon and evening I covered a bit more than 10 km total. Toledo felt touristy (I can imagine it's a madhouse in season) but certainly worth the visit.
