A Float Down Central Bilbao

October 28, 2013

Day one of our weekend trip to Basque country we boarded a tour boat and floated down a river in central Bilbao to see the city as well as the surrounding countryside. Although it was a bit overcast, it was beautiful to see the industrialized yet recently revitalized heart of País Vasco’s capital.

I&#39;ve been studying spanish for the last six years and look forward to chatting with the locals while studying in Madrid. When not doing homework I am either running around at practice with my ultimate frisbee team, the Gods of Plastic, or laying out the most recent edition of a publication I cofounded recently. I&#39;ll try and bring you some photos showing the real Madrid, not just the pictures you see on postcards. That means grabbing a picture of the bell-ringing, whistle-blowing, half-man/half-goat creature you&#39;ll find in Plaza Mayor. Mucho gusto y disfruta.</span></div>
