Friday, July 20th, 2007 – Baiona & Uztaritze - Lapurdi.
Today I spent the morning in Baiona to do some souvenir shopping and came across this cool store that my brother had told me about, “4+3 – Les 7 Provinces du Pays Basque”, located near St. Mary’s cathedral at 71, rue d’Espagne. You can check out the interesting t-shirt designs that Bertrand Barbaste has to offer at his shop at www.4plus3.net.
In the afternoon, my cousin Manu Millox-Acheritogaray picked me up to visit my great aunt Sister Marie Etchecopar, who is a retired nun living at a retirement facility in Uztaritze. We had a great visit and I was happy to see that my great aunt was in very good spirits and even gave us a tour of the entire facility.
We then went to visit our cousin in Iholdi, David Acheritogaray, who just became a father a few weeks earlier.
