We’re revisiting the “How to be a tourist” section, by popular demand.

In the restoration, beneath the foundation,
the skeleton of a whale was found.
Its bones date back to the year 1464.
We also have pending a visit
to another restaurant, this time vegetarian,
“The Green Curry”.
We would also like to try the Restaurant Arroka Berri, Sebastián, and Alameda,

our little visit.
It’s been a pleasure.
