spain day 5
We went and saw how some jewelry was made (locally with real gold and silver leafing) and we all bought a piece. We then went to another church (Iglesia de Santo Tome) that houses one of El Greco's paintings. We split up because Janet and Janae wanted to see the Jewish quarter and temple and we went to meet up with our mom. Mom had stayed to rest for a bit at the hotel and met up with us around lunch. We stopped and got churros that you dipped in warm chocolate pudding. Different, but good. I may prefer our cinnamon coated churros, hmmm. We then wandered around some more and did some shopping and on our way to the bus we picked up some Flamenco dancers made by Lladro. That's where all of our money went. And everyone bought a few scarves.
We were then on the road to Segovia. We arrived and found our awesome hotel Infanta Isabel (favorite on the trip) was right in the main square sitting across from the Cathedral of Segovia also known as Santa Maria and St. Frutos Cathedral. We wandered around and then ate at a restaurant that served a traditional dish of pig. Kathryn's still had the little leg and hoof on it. Totally grossing Stacie out. We returned to our cool hotel with balconies overlooking the Cathedral and town square/plaza mayor.
