Hola! It's Mollye. We are having a wonderful time here in Madrid. Today, we visited the city of Toledo, the capital of the region of Castilla La Mancha. First, we went on a walking tour of the city where we visited the famous painting by El Greco "Count Orgaz" and we went inside the Catedral de Toledo. After our tour, we had free time where we ate lunch and many of us bought marzipan, a speciality of the city. Also, some students went shopping at "trendy" Spanish stores. Finally, we went on a tour of a sword and jewelry factory, another speciality of the city. Now we are back at school waiting for our Spanish families to pick us up.
