A black sock, white thread, a needle, a thimble and a plea: 'Santitum zaina urtu, zaina bere lekuen sartu', in a mixture of Latin and Basque. This is the full extent of Carmen's treatment for the healing of sprains. The mantra has to be repeated three times, on three different days. Healing rituals live on in the Basque Country, a place where magical practices have been transmitted from woman to woman for generations. For the time being, Carmen has no successor.
