Activities: Toledo - a day trip from Madrid to see 2 old Shuls. Can hire a tour guide (his contact info is somewhere in the thread), which is not cheap, or can take a train on your own. 1 of the Shuls is closed one day a week (Tuesdays?). @Yehuda went on a day when that Shul was closed, and the other Shul was really just an empty room and seemed like a Christian organization now runs the center. Without a tour guide, it was hard to get anything Jewish out of our trip (other than an antique store that had some Judaica). But, people who have taken the tour (discussed in the thread) have said it was great! Recommended to go with a tour or not go at all (and ensure to go on a day when both are open!). Report in the thread that the sometimes-closed Shul has audio headsets for use, so that would help.

Best way to get around anywhere in this country is by scooter. It is safer driving them there since they outnumber cars by great proportions.

I left a gallon of CY milk, a couple month old by now, but would make great cottage cheese.

Looking for opinions.

I'm planning a night in Barcelona and don't know where to stay. I've been to the Le Meridian twice and, although it's very convenient, I wouldn't mind a change.

Choices include:
W
Ritz - Hotel Arts
One of three Hilton Hotels: Alexandra Barcelona Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton, Hilton Barcelona, Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona
Crowne Plaza

Anyone spend the night in any of these?

Thanks

No, but we chose an amazing Airbnb right near Las Ramblas. Was convenient, cheap and quite nice.

Because you want something close, nice and it doesn't cost that much?

Anyone hear of a new restaurant in Barcelona called Shaq Shuq. According to yeahthatskosher.com it is certified by Harabanut Hareishit of Barcelona & Catalonia, using Bet Yosef meat.

Good Hashgacha?
