After this, we drove into St. Sabastian! We parked in an underground parking structure and heading up to see the city by the sea. I hadn't realized how close we were to the ocean until I stepped out of the parking structure and suddenly smelled the ocean air. When I looked down the block there seemed to be no end because ahead of us, the ocean stretched out forever. We wandered around for a bit and then A.B asked if we were hungry, we were. A.B took us to a little restaurant which had plates of sandwiches sitting on the bar. A.B. told us to simply pick up what we liked and show the man behind the bar what we were taking. Colleen and I had omelette sandwiches (basically eggs and potato in bread) and Emma and Adora both got meat sandwiches. After this we wandered around some more, going into a few stores and seeing more of the beauty of Spain.
Soon A.B and Louis were hungry and so we went to another restaurant, Ganbara. This one also had several options laid out on plates on the bar. A.B. ordered fish (sardines or anchovies, i can't remember) that is apparently a special of Spain, as well as, some delicious sauteed mushrooms! Other than things with pork in it, which Colleen and I did not eat, everyone tried everything. Soon we walked to another place with the same set up (options of food on the bar) which apparently is a very popular style in Spain/St. Sabastian. There we met up with more friends, Oliver and his girlfriend, Kelsey (who are about our age and are from the States to)
Finally, we walked to a large square where, apparently, they used to have bull fights. We could sit down there and we sat for a long time talking, in French and English. Oliver and Kelsey can both speaking French and Louis couldn't speak very much English. Kelsey was very concerned with keeping everyone in the loop which was very nice.
Oliver, it turns out, lives on the same street as me but farther down, and Kelsey's father grew up in a town in India, which I visited on my trip last year.
When it was finally time to drive back, we said "odios" to Oliver and Kelsey and were on our way, stopping for some ice cream (cookie flavored!). On the drive home Louis was very interested in sharing his music with us and so most of the way, Emma was listening to his MP3 player and enjoyed his music greatly.
At home, we finished the X-Men movie we started last night and went to sleep. :)
