Voyage en Espagna

Voyage en Espagna, or Trip to Spain, a small watercolor in my journal. About two weeks ago, I started driving to the north of Spain, from Cauterets, in the French Pyrenees. My friend Marie Christine and I took turns driving. We drove down from the mountain town of Cauterets, through Lourdes, and took the A64 Autoroute to San Sebastian, already in Spain. It's only about 3-4 hours drive, but we had left late in the day, so we arrived at night. At the tapas bar, we asked for nearby accommodations, and were directed to a charming "Pension", where a very nice lady took us in for the night. San Sebastian is a beautiful city in the Basque section of Spain. Tapas, small open-faced sandwiches with an incredible variety of foods and colors, are the specialty.
Viaje en Espana, un pequena acuarela en mi cuaderno de viajes. Hace unas dos semanas, salimos con mi amiga Marie-Christine conduciendo hacia el norte de Espana. Comenzamos en Cauterets, en los Pirineos franceses, a traves de Lourdes, luego tomamos la autopista A64 hasta San Sebastian, ya en Espana. Son solo unas 3-4 horas de viaje, pero como salimos ya tarde en el dia, llegamos a San Sebastian de noche. En el bar de tapas, preguntamos por una pension en la zona, pleno centro de San Sebastian. Nos enviaron a una pension encantadora, donde una senora muy amable nos acogio. San Sebastian es una hermosa ciudad en la zona Basca de Espana. Tapas, como sandwiches sin el pan de arriba, de distintas variedades y colores, son la especialidad.
