When we left Lourdes we drove to Pau and followed the Gave de Pau. This is a beautiful blue river which also had rapids here and there. The scenery here is really beautiful. Vineyards appear again along this route and now there are lots of cream colored cattle on the hillsides. In this region of Basque country the red, green and white Basque flag is sold.
This area has their own language which is Latin based. The Basque country has been untouched by invaders and an interesting fact is that there is a high incidence of Blood Group B in the general population.
