Road Trip to San Sebastian
One day last week, while listening to the morning “net”, Philo from Philo’s Bar announced he was organizing a road trip to the small mining village of San Sebastian. I got on the radio right away and said, “Count me in! I want to go to San Blas!” Philo said, “We’re not going to San Blas. We’re going to San Sebastian.” I said, “I don’t care. I want to go.” I love getting out and seeing new places.
Sunday morning I walked to Philo’s with my overnight bag and met seventeen people I didn’t know. We climbed into several vans to caravan 2 hours west into the mountains. It was a beautiful drive.
The village of San Sebastion was founded in 1605. At least 25 foundaries were constructed to mine for gold silver and lead.
Our hotel was 400 years old.
After we got settled into our rooms we walked around the village.
Later, we went for a hike.
After a short siesta, we went out for dinner and to listen to Philo’s band.
We ended the evening visiting in the lobby of the hotel. The hotel was originally built as a private residence in the hacienda style.
