Into the Pyrenees – 1 – Cauterets, the Pont d’ Espagna, and the World Cup win

France wins and Cauterets celebrates

In a quite valley

In the Pyrenees

A few sort miles from Spain

Over the Pont d’ Espagna

Cascading

Water

Bringing joy and beauty

On the bridge to Spain

In the Haute Pyrenees

And in bars in Cauterets the faithful watch the world cup being won

And the Gendarme too sounded the victory siren

In Cauterets when France won the World Cup.

Impressions of North West Spain – part 4, the culture.

Pouring sidr in Cangas de Onis

Friendly

Diverse

Lively

Passionate

Yes the culture of Spain but the north west is a little different

Maybe it’s the Comino de Santiago

Or the hydrangeas that are every where

The pipes being played at the cathedral in Santiago de Compestela

Or could it be the thermal pools in Ourense, free for the public to use

But I think it’s the vast greenness and amazing Lakes and rivers.
