Day 5: Toledo to Granada

After a very successful concert in the Teatro de Rojas in Toledo, we departed for Granada, Spain.  The name of the city was nostalgic for me, because my family had a Ford Granada back in the seventies which served us well.  We had a four hour drive to Granada ahead of us.

Day 12 | So Long To Hangzhou

During the night at our hotel, we experienced a little unexpected excitement as the local police subjected our floor to a random security check.
