(Bai is “yes” in Basque – one of the few words I’ve picked up…)
It’s great to see this initiative to recycle cooking oil to make biodiesel. The collection points are near the recycling bins in Donostia-San Sebastian and we have some plainer ones in my adopted town of Hondarribia (and hopefully all over the Basque Country). I love the use of graphics by the local cartoonist whose work can be found here: http://www.kukuxumusu.com/index.php/en/quienes-somos#
It is hard to buy second hand in Spain, but we got a tip off about one second hand store that exists in Irun (turns out there is one in San Sebastian too). It’s run by Emaus Traperos and it’s HUGE!
They had everything…. including the kitchen sink….
We were able to get ourselves a few things including a TV for 18 euros. A helpful lad explained how to get an adaptor (TDT) to receive the digital channels. After a trip to Al Campo (vast supermarket), we got what we needed and set it up and it works! This should help us learn a bit more Spanish. And get addicted to telenovelas….
There are a lot of distractions in this little town. We’ve had a bonfire festival and a blues festival. Last weekend, there was a cider festival. It was happening right outside our flat, so there was no avoiding it… We paid our 5 euros to get a glass that got us one pintxo (either a bit of chorizo, or a slice of tortilla – Spanish omelette) and an unlimited amount of cider.
