Cousins Holding HandsOn Sunday, we were in Mondragon to meet Nora’s cousin Chloé for the first time. Chloé is the same relationship depth to Nora as Cousin Rodrigo. Chloé is Nora’s mother’s mother’s brother’s son’s daughter. Marga and Chloé’s father, Andoni, are first cousins. We went to Chloé’s parents’ wedding just over a year ago. Chloé’s mother is French, so she will be growing up in a bilingual household like Nora.

Happy grandmothers Manoli and Marce exchange granddaughters…only temporarily.

Oh no! The immigrants are reproducing!!

Can you tell where the television in the bar is? It’s hard to interact with Nora if there’s a television in the room.

There we go! Aunt Belén with her nieces.

Is that thing still behind me??
“Is that thing still behind me?? Is it still doing that bow-and-arrow thing?”

Nom nom nom! What did you think Nora would do with her cousin’s hand?

Tastes a little French.

It will be fun to watch these two grow up together.

  • I think that’s some kind of French martial art Chloé’s practising, not archery.

    • That’s the martial art where they shout Foie gras! when they attack, right?

      • Kung foutre, I believe it’s called.
