BIARRITZ – We made the one hour drive here this morning from San Sebastian – a very easy day trip. The weather was overcast and rainy (commonplace here) but we had a lovely lunch at a fish place by the beach. kWe were back in San Sebastian for an early evening stroll through the old town.

ELCIEGO SPAIN – We drove to this small town on the border between Basque country and the Rioja. It’s the center of a major wine growing region; Marques de Riscal is based here; the winery has built a small hotel using Frank Gehry as the architect; there’s a Michelin one-star restaurant in the hotel. We came for lunch.
