Pelota vasca

Before leaving the farm country and saying goodbye to Eugenio, we came to the center of the community where there is always a church and a frontón, a ball court for pelota vasca.

Explaining the game to Dane
OK, let's get started. Dane and Eugenio attempt to play a game of pelota a mano.



"Good game!"

 
That is the same ball Eugenio used when he was a boy!

The game is rough on the hands.

Back where we started, the same church where we had seen the pilgrim. Time to say goodbye.

"Gracias, Eugenio. Adiós."

I like that swooping canopy. Very pretty.
