Who'd Have Ever Guessed...

...that on a quiet residential street of South San Francisco, the self dubbed "industrial city" you'd find this place? In addition to publishing, banquet facilities, a restaurant and cultural center, they also organize handball games. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be that many fishermen hanging about, just a bit too far in from the bay to lug those little boats. And, of course, don't even get me started on the ETA.

WAT - Good grief, WAT, after so many visits here I thought you'd recognize joy when you saw it staring you in the face by now. The Basque are a tenacious, tough breed, by the way, and they don't go in for all those syrupy, toothy smiles. So I believe when in Bilbao (or South San Francisco)...

Kimy - I've not read it yet, but I'm about half way through his history of Salt. Salt, cod and the Basque -- all paths weave together and lead to the Pyrenees in my life.
