We’ve been in Donastia (San Sebastian), for the past couple of days. It has a Belle Époque feel; walking along the beach promenade I could picture women with parasols and men wearing straw hats.
I had some truly delicious slow cooked pork pintxos (small dishes) at La Cuchera de San Telmo.
All signs are in Spanish and Basque and it does sound very different from anything else I’ve ever heard. Our hotel receptionist was patient enough to teach me a few phrases:
- Kaixo (kaysho) – hello
- Eskerrik asko (eskerry asko) – thank you
