We woke up at 10:30am and for the first time since we started this trip, I felt well rested
I got to the library, checked email (the people we are doing the exchange with got to our house and are getting all settled in. Thanks Ron & Deb for the beautiful greeting basket you prepared for them!) and then took off to finish laundry and make lunch
We had some leftover fish and the ribs Asher cooked yesterday. We are trying to clear out the fridge since we are going to be away from the house from tomorrow till Wednesday. After lunch, Asher ran across the street to get my Cafe Cortado (mostly coffee with a little milk) from Maria Angeles. I love that coffee! It seriously makes me happy. Now is was Asher's turn to go on a jog.
Ok. Asher back at the keyboard now. Janice rocks at blogging. She will be back with more fer sure!
My jog turned in to a hike instead ... along Calsada Romana, a famous pathway along these mountains. No stairmaster for me here, so the Spanish mountains will have to do. Hehe... Gorgeous views of Pie de Concha. Probably two miles up and two miles back. I am tired! On the way back, I saw some kids playing pool, so we grabbed our kids and joined them for a while
We then took the kids along the same path I had walked (a much shorter hike of course) ... and back to the house for some grub, the kids' first movie since our plane ride out of SF, some play time with some locals out frot, and finally some sleep for them, and late night work for me. Its pretty neat to see the families all outside together in to the evening playing and talking and just BEING. Nothing to do, not even sharing a meal ... just sitting outside with neighbors, friends, and family.
Tomorrow starts another small leg of our journey. We are heading on a five day trip... to San Sebastian for a two nights stay with some folks we connected with online via homeforexchange.com, then Pamplona for the running of the bulls where we secured free lodging for a night!, and then Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim.
Lounging around the house and village today, Janice and I decided to take photos of everything so we can remember it well ... I hope you enjoy!
PS. One technical glitch ... we did a video tour of the house to share but its too big to upload unless I'm in a place with easier internet access so I'll load it up when we get to Bilbao.
