San Sebastian, St Jean Du Luz, and back to Paris

Sorry (mom) for the delay in posts! We have been been having quite a bit of fun, leaving little time for blogging :)

San Sebastian was really amazing...I think we would travel back there again over and over for its culture and mostly food. We ate our fair share of jamon iberico, anchovies and Pintxos (although I'm sure Zach would say he has room for more).

On Friday the film festival in San Sebastian started and we headed out...back up the coast to a tiny town in French Basque country called St Jean Du Luz. But first we detoured to Getaria for an awesome lunch with Andy and Stacy Bard who had just gotten to Bilbao for 2 weeks in Spain! Ate the tastiest grilled Sole I've ever had and we were on our way. St Jean Du Luz is absolutely beautiful and charming and we at seafood there that was some of the freshest I've ever tasted. Everything is simply prepared (a la plancha) and just perfect. We ate tons of prawns, squid, hake, langoustine, and fish soup.

...oh....and Arzak, but that's another story, enough for it's own post. Stay tuned!

Today we drove all the way back to Paris, dropped off our car and checked into a really cool hotel in Montemart for our final days of the honeymoon. We went out for Zach's favorite meal so far (Chinese food) with Max and Ari. And then cheese, pate, bread and pastries at Max and Ari's apartment...so, thanks to them (and our amazing time in St Jean Du Luz) we can no longer say it is hard to find good food in France!!

Here are some photos from the last few days...
