christmas in donosti

Christmas has arrived to San Sebastián.

Turrones, a typical nougatine Christmas confection, are everywhere. In every flavor imaginable, with as many variations as there are cities in Spain. Turron is to this country as pie is to America.

People are shopping the streets lined with lights, fake icicles, and stalls of roasted chestnuts.  Decorations are everywhere, and the giant Christmas tree just went up at the Ayuntamiento.

It's beautiful here.
