Pictures, at least

Hi! I am sorry it has been almost three weeks...yikes! That is bad, even for me. Please forgive me?

Here are links to my pictures from Switzerland:

I went for four days last week with my friend Alex. A beautiful, expensive country! We saw four cities in three days! I really loved Lucerne (although we saw that amazing castle above in Montreux, and loved it), where we caught some of their carnival celebration-wow!

I am studying for a midterm exam next week (I am taking another online class), and after that I promise some posts. I have a list of anecdotes and thoughts to much to say, so little time!

The weather in Toledo has been soooo beautiful this weekend: sunny and sixty-six degrees! So though I should have been locked away with my books, I allowed myself a few recesses to soak up some vitamin D. And every time I am out, I can't help but marvel at the beautiful city I call home. I am so grateful for this experience.

Happy weekend!

Sweet Sunday

I had a lovely Sunday afternoon. I toured Iglesia San Juan de los Reyes, which was built by Ferdinand and Isabel to declare Catholicism (and the monarchy) as the principle force in the country. It was a monastery, and has a beautiful cloister attached. Again, I wondered how these people managed to build such intricate, beautiful buildings with such few resources. Stunning. My friends and I then walked through some of the old town by the river before we ate lunch at a Syrian restaurant ( where the food is delicious and the service is just as wonderful). Below are a few pictures...more to follow this week on the Picasa account.

I am off to bed to rest up before another week with the little ones. I have another cough to deal with...perhaps I am allergic to Spain?

I don't seems highly unlikely for anyone to be allergic to sights like these.

I wish you all happy, blessed weeks!

Un abrazo.
