Bilbao

Hello Bilbao. Here I am for a long weekend as Mr E is here judging el Sol Spanish Advertising festival. Arriving Friday midday we took a tour around the city.
Leisure Center by Philippe Starck.
And aside from the very new buildings, there's some
Loving these tiles.
And the home team support.
Heading over to the old town, past the train station.
There was an exhibition of Seat 600's by the river, just beautiful. My kind of car for sure.
Sunday morning we were up early to visit the flea market in the new square, in the old town. Nothing much, lots of books, a few records, and lots of canaries. I did manage to find a little El Mandarina flan doll. She's very nice. And, surprisingly, a Neville Shute book in English to add to my collection.
Some nice type, bat, and cat was spied. Following posts on the big attraction, the Guggenheim, of course. And the other big draw card to this area – the food.
