19th May

Arriving in Toledo (,_Spain) around 10am I walked the town, which is very hilly. Though I also was going by the Zocotren for getting an overview of the most important sights and buildings. Afterwards I walked around some more time and was looking at the train station as well. On the way to the train station, one will get some more impressions.





I continued at 16:15 by Alsa bus at a cost for 9 EUR to Ciudad Real, where I had to change the bus for going further to Valdepeñas, my destination for this day, where I have got another host. Unfortunately none could tell me in Toledo if there are buses at all from Ciudad Real to Valdepeñas. Finally arrived in Ciudad Real – which I only saw from the bus and where a statue of Don Quichote catched my eyes – I found easily a bus to my further destination. It was departing at 19:15 and arriving in Valdepeñas at 20:30. Though I had around one hour waiting time in Ciudad Real, what was not enough time for taking pictures in the city. The ticket for this bus was for 4,77 EUR I still can read on a nearly bleached one. The route was throughout the mountains with famous formations and views as well as the other routes have been.

There is a good photograph of the monument of Don Quixote de la Mancha and Sancho Panza.
