le fin de semaine

Astounding weather today. After my weekly French-English coffee tutorial with Bruno little else was accomplished. Three hours reading on the beach followed by three hours lounging on the terrace. Very tiring.

As the sun began to lower we were roused by a demonstration in support of Basque culture and heritage. Around a thousand participants walked the streets of St Jean de Luz carrying banners and flags shouting "supression is not the solution" (but in French obviously).

Tonight is Flamenco dance night, I will report back tomorrow but am feeling quietly confident.

Basque of the day:- freedom :: askatasun
