Because you've been good this year and because I want to make it seems like I care this is X'mas, I, St. Chaxiubao (St. for Stink, not Saint) have something in the cardboard boxes for you. Among the maelstrom of photo sets on the right, you'll find 2 Flickr photo sets wrapped up in perfectly charming tissue paper. One is an album of eats from San Sebastain. You'll behold some of the most irresistible pintxos (tapas) in the world in this album. I mean, tapas as a puffy pastry? If you ever want to see tapas in its most sophisticated and refined form, come to San Sebastain. In this season of cliches, I have to add this: it is the place to be.
The second is an album of Txulotxo, a restaurant that's a little bit off-flung from the city centre of San Sebastain. It's in a fishing village called Pasai Donibane. To get to this lovely secluded restaurant, you'll need to catch the bus, walk for a few minutes and take the "motora," a little motorboat that shuttle between the pier and the village. But once you see the fishing boats tied up at the wharf, the appealing architecture of buildings around the waterfront and all that -- not to mentioned the yummy and authentic seafood flair, you'll find the hassle totally worthy!
Though they're already placed on the side bar, please don't tear off the wrappings until Boxing Day. We'll do this altogether like good friends should. Promise?
