The bombings in Madrid happened about 3 weeks before I went. I more or less decided that I'm not going to live in fear. At the time my logic also was based on a potentially incorrect assumption that Madrid was probably the safest place to go after the bombings... I assumed security would be heightened, etc.Whatever the case, my trip in Spain was uneventful. Yes, they found a bomb on the train tracks as we were leaving, and then the ringleader of the previous bombings blew up himself along with that police officer. But I still never felt any threat while there.It was actually my first foray into Europe, so I have not yet been to Paris or Florence. I'd love to see both though... and now I'm realizing that two or three days is nowhere NEAR enough time in any given city.Toledo was GREAT from a historical perspective although I don't know that there's a lot to do there. However, the pace was slower and the environment was gorgeous. I'd live there based on the fact that it's predominantly rural yet still close to Madrid.But... at the moment I'm trapped in middle management with no serious thoughts of escape (except on the bad days when I realize that Dilbert's world is not an exaggeration).Adios for now...Chris
