paella pick-me-up

The rain has poured incessantly today. It doesn't matter where in the world you are, if it rains for a few days in succession it starts to get to you.

To cheer myself up I jumped in the car, turned on some very loud Flamenco music (Paco Peña) and headed for lunch across the Spanish border in San Sebastian.

Being able to make a simple journey to another country for lunch never ceases to amuse me. After enjoying a delicious helping of mixed paella - the sofrito sauce was wonderful - I strolled through the bustling streets. I made the return trip a far happier, if slightly fuller, person. Life is really not so bad after all!

Basque of the day:- lunch :: bazkari
