Visit from Cousin Andrew

My cousin, Andrew, visited us on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as part of his month-long European train tour. It sure seemed like he was glad to have a flat bed in a room all to himself. From my limited experience, it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep in trains and hostals.

Sunday Soccer

June 06, 2006 By: erik Category: Family, Mondragon, Photos, Soccer, Spain

On Sunday, we went to Mondragon to see two soccer matches, organized in honor of Marga’s uncle, Jose Luis, who passed away in February. The first was between two teams of ten-year-olds that Jose Luis had coached, and the second was between Jose Luis’ eldest son’s, Gorka’s, team, and Jose Luis’ friends (many of whom were fathers of the opposing players). His younger son, Ion, also played. Ion, though three years younger, was the best player on the youngster team.

New Blog

Okay, I finally got tired of the way I was doing my blog. As a web developer, it irked me beyond belief that I couldn’t control the actual html code that was being output for my entries.
