So, I’m back from Spain! Thanks again to Jani, Guy, and Hillary for their guest posts while I was gone. I had never seen any of those before, but they all came out looking great! Solid work, friends.
My mother and I got back to the US Saturday night and went to bed without eating, and I spent all Sunday out with my father, so I’m afraid I haven’t cooked anything myself in almost 2 weeks?! That’ll be fixed by Wednesday, when I’ll either be sharing a fudgey cake or some ice cream – haven’t decided which to make first!
In the meantime, here are a few pictures from our trip to Bilbao, Spain:
The flower dog statue outside Bilbao Guggenheim is sort of the thing that made me want to go to Bilbao in the first place. Reasonable?
Gluten-free’s a thing everywhere, I guess!
We took a funicular up a mountain in the north side of Bilbao.
The view from where the funicular lets off.
The Bullfighting Museum has posters from fights as long ago as 1895, and up to today.
One of the better meals I’ve ever had.
Neanderthal teeth, at the Bilbao Archaeology Museum!
Grave marker at the same museum.
A statue depicting the running of the bulls, in Pamplona.
Tony Gallopin winning the San Sebastian Classic.
The winner “gets” to wear that hat?
Some pintxos, which are SUPER common in Basque country. A wide variety of them are just out on the bar and you go up and pick a few to eat. The one on the right, with a soft cheese and tomato jelly (?) was the best one of the trip.
As trustworthy a palm-reader as I’ve ever seen.
