Aug 21, 2004 - Chad is here!!! Off to Biarritz!

Chad´s time here visiting me was short but sweet! We packed many things in to his five days here...we rented a kayak for a long journey out to the ocean for a view of the cliffs surrounding San Sebastian, we rented surf boards and bikes ofcourse, hung out on the beach and had long chats about what is going on in chi-town, had wonderful meals, and a great trip up to Biarritz! Chad is truly a great friend, and I will forever appreciate how much effort and cost it was for him to come and hang out for the short time he had. Chad took many...
