fêtes des rameaux

Palm Sunday in St Jean de Luz. The priest and his cohorts held a brief service at the port before leading a procession back to Eglise St Jean Baptiste. There were over a thousand people at the service, most holding/ waving palms. A far more civilised affair than last year's scrum in St Peter's Square.
We took coffee and croissants on Place Louis IV. A troupe of children partook in Basque dancing accompanied by local musicians. All very jolly.

Basque of the day:- coffee :: kafe
