“Spain with Lorraine”

Posted by Alex Colao on November 15, 2011

November 15 – 17, 2011  On the occasion of my 60th Birthday!! Left for Madrid airport to go get Lorraine (Imma) in the morning. We rented a car and went off to Avila. We stayed in the city walls at our first Parador and it was great. They are old palaces, convents and castles that heve been converted into hotels. We checked in and left our bags and off we went to look for the Convento di Santa Teresa. Avila is beautiful and in the next couple of days we went to all the convents and churches although many were closed and only open for services. A little because of lack of money and also because of thefts. On november 17 we went to mass in the morning at the Convento del Incarnacion. From Avila we took excursions to Medina del Campo and Salamanca.
