Last week flew by. I was chasing my deadlines, as usual and also sorted out my new website (alexhallatt.com, which makes a lot more sense than moontoon.com, even if I had to register every alternate spelling of my last name). I skived off a bit of Friday to go to see a bit of the jazz festival in San Sebastian and stayed home on Saturday to enjoy another crazy festival here.
I don’t know what it is called, but having pieced together what locals told us (subject to things being lost in translation) it seemed to involve a woman with a box on her head (containing fishermen’s papers, perhaps), parading from the cathedral to the arch way by the fishermen’s restaurant, where she turned around a few times.
Turns out, that is exactly what happened. We aren’t sure what the flags were set up for in the courtyard (together with a stage), but once the woman with the box on her head was done turning, everyone went back to what they were doing and it was pintxo time for us.
