So today Cameron and I took a jog to Deusto. I was dying. He was 10x a better runner than me. We then met up and climbed then hill to see the statue of Jesus. My legs are dead. I have never in my entire life climbed up hills that steep. The dogs are different here than in America. Dogs here are mostly small dogs more seen as an accessory I would say. Always wearing coats paired next to stylish women. On our hike we saw a man kick the ball off this very steep ledge and about had a ...
... many years ago. Unfortunately we left our run a little late as everything around the centre has siesta between 1.30 and 4.30pm daily and truly, everything does close. People bring their stuff off the street and close their doors.

Suffice to say, we've thoroughly enjoyed San Sebastian and we look forward to challenging other cities and countries to beat its cuisine and ...
... things called Pintxos. They are like tapas, but made on the spot and are really good and well presented. Better and more expensive than tapas. We also tried the wine from around there. Each bar specializes in a specific pintxos, so when you ask for it, they make it on the spot. Juan took us to all these great places to eat. OMG we even tried frogs legs!!!! It was good. Tasted kind of like chicken, haha but different. Juan told us that in San Sebastian, there are gastronomical clubs. You ...
