BORING!! The population here is only 8,000, but they have 47 restaurants! The largest concentration of Basque (Spain Spanish) restaurants per capita in the U.S. That would be 2. We went to the Basque restaurant in the historic Martin Hotel. They have long tables and will seat you with strangers. They eat their dishes individually. We ordered the lamb shank ...

So we went to the auto parts place to get a new belt and changed it in the parking lot. Yay all ok!! We then went back to the room and got KFC from next door for dinner.
