Musings, Thoughts & Commentaries
Mailyn drove on to Bilbao, where I lived and worked 1978-80.
We checked into Sercotel Coliseo, Aveida Urquijo. Mailyn and I had room #307, Emily and Elaiza #306. After a long day of driving we all hit the sack.
The next day we four walked around Bilbao, crossed the bridge over the Nervion into Old Town. Mailyn “Wants to live here.” We shopped in El Corte Ingles and made our own dinner in the hotel.
Our tour of the Guggenheim Museum was a highlight of our trip. Then we had lunch at Krunch, with pineapple smoothies!
In the early evening Mailyn and I took a city bus tour sitting in the front row of a double decker and saw a magnificent city. Impulse shopping at Mango. I bought a pink shirt and a checkered linen sport coat--new style for me.
I had a vino tinto at local bar and packed up.
