The Hordes of Toledo

Zombie Hordes or Just a Tour Group

Holy moly, I’d wager about 75% of the people in Toledo, Spain, were on a tour of some kind. We’re totally cool with tours, but when you get thirty or forty people following the directions of a single guide they do tend to exhibit a kind of hive mentality. All individual thought (and most notions of common courtesy) goes out the window. Get three or four of these hives together in the narrow streets of a medieval city, and it’s a little like being swarmed by a zombie horde; except that none of them has tried to eat us. Yet.
