I went on a quick holiday to Madrid & Toledo to visit with friends. I thought I'd share a few snapshots with you all.  Traveling around Europe has been the most important and amazing part of living abroad.  I throughly enjoy learning about historical places and learning about current cultures.  We ate more churros and chocolate than we probably should have, but the best idea we had was to go see a simply wonderful traditional flamenco show at Cafe de Chinitas.
