Geo: 43.3172, -2.67896Up early to catch a bus back to Bilbao - no eggs this morning, no time! I stuck with toast, milk, and a pale imitation of Nutella. I said my goodbyes - only Rob, Pervez, and Angela were up. I'm going to miss the nights at the tapas bars. I laughed to myself as I thought about a funny incident last night - I told the Aussie girls about the "Spanish Lookaway" ... Read Full Entry

Calle Somera, in the old town. People like to take their drinks outside, and sit and chat. I wish they didn't do that - it's so much easier checking out the women when they are standing up, then I don't have to crawl around on my hands and knees like a drooling dog. Instead I can drool like a dog and check them out while in a standing position!

Back at the same hotel - I ended up with a newly renovated room tonight, but I don't get why they couldn't put on some real door numbers instead of scrawling it on with a black marker ...
