One of the cathedrals in San Sebastian
I took a trip to San Pedro and the Pasaia district. We took a little boat over to Pasaia, making it feel like it’s an island. Actually, it’s connected to the mainland but it definitely has an island mentality and feel. The residents are strongly Basque (even more so than the people in central San Sebastian). There were flags and posters supporting the ETA, a hardline separatist organisation that has been involved in terrorist incidents in the past.
But there was also a beautiful little church where an old man, on hearing our group speaking a mix of English and Spanish, rushed out to ask us if we could translate a postcard for him. It had been sent by an old friend, written in English, which he couldn’t understand. As my friends translated, I snuck a couple of shots from the balcony above.
Outside, the area is beautiful. If you know me, you know I don’t “do” landscapes, but obviously I had to grab a couple of wide angle shots.
