Corner view: Somewhere else






Somewhere else. A spring sunny but cold sunday. Some little villages of the French Basque Country.
The calm of the green growing slowly. The smell of just made bread. The spicy taste of Espelette pepper.

Escaping from routine just a few hours far from home. Becoming tourist in the near city. Just wandering without map, stopping when the view of the village is nice, eating what local shops offer and bringing home something just to remember those little corners somewhere else.

Photos are from Espelette and Ainhoa.

En algún otro sitio. Un día fresco de primavera. Domingo. Los pequeños pueblos del País Vasco Francés. La calma de la hierba creciendo lentamente. El olor a pan recién hecho. El sabor picante de los pimientos de Espelette.
Escapando de la rutina a unas horas de casa. Convirtiéndonos en turistas en el pueblo de al lado. Vagando sin mapa, parando cuando la vista de la ciudad resultaba atractiva, comiendo lo que encontrabamos en las pequeñas tiendas locales y llevándonos a casa algo para recordar esos pequeños lugares.

Las fotos están hechas en Espelette y Ainhoa.

  10. I always want to become tourist. I try to do that in my own city also, because when you look with tourist eyes, you will see so different kind of things.
