Where we are

The fields are covered with yellow dandelions and txiribita flowers.

Sheep have taken over the landscape.

White plum petals and magnolias paint the sky when we look up. Apple trees are showing the first green buds and I am awaiting anxiously for the flowers to bloom. Will I be here to witness it? Not sure yet, but we scout corners and small villages for them.

Here is a little preview of the things we are savoring. Back soon. Laster arte.

    Your homeland is so beautiful.I live in Cantabria now, teaching English for a year, but I love the Basque Country. Yesterday, we spent the afternoon on the Bizcayia Coast (Bermeo, Gernika, San Juan de Gaztulgatxe). I could never spend too much time exploring Euskadi. Enjoy the rest of your visit. The long balmy afternoons are heaven sent!
    agor (I only know this word must mean goodbye or hello, but I thought I’d try it out!)

    Unbelievable. I don’t think there’s anything quite so pretty as sheep grazing in a springtime pasture.

    Magical and ethereal seem impossible to get along with such a politically charged land, but it all somehow comes together beautifully in the Basque country. Oh, and the mysterious roots of the Basque language make it just supreme. So full of magic.
