Spain, the middle section

Bilbao, at the Guggenheim museum

Which is a better picture?

On the rooftop, with Bilbao in the background

and here with some rooftop art

Here's a Gaudi building. I THINK this was in Bilbao -- it might be Milan.

Also in Bilbao, we celebrated Dessi's Second Birthday!! Having rather bizarre priorities, we did not take any photos of the actual party except for this fairly unfabulous one.

Really, the day itself was really fun but the party was unimpressive -- we were hungry, my feet hurt, and Dessi's birthday dress had gotten poo on it. So we kicked her new ball around, played with her new choking hazards, and called it a night. Onward!

On another day, here we are, "hiking" on the Camino de Santiago. (Hiking with the Bob. It's a very established trail system.) It was my idea. Yes, yes, my idea for us to drive hours out of our way (it looked like such a short distance on the map!) on a slow and winding road only to hike for approximately 35 minutes on a windy and freezing day!!! After which, we drove back the way we came. Pilgrims, we are not.

But it was a sweet little village.

The time goes so quickly and I can't keep up with all of your travels. When are you home? I went to Philly - my big trip for the year. And really, that included no sightseeing aside from a walk in the rain to see the Liberty Bell which, amazingly, has not changed since I last say it.

Anyway, I like the close-up picture better. You can see the flowers and the cute people much better.

Hope you're having a great trip and can't wait to hear more about your new addition.

love, lee :)

I found your blog through Irishopian and enjoy reading your posts. My husband and I are adopting two young siblings from Ethiopia. I just passed along a blog award to you on my own blog. (Feel free to ignore the award duties. If I was traveling Spain, I would have far better things to do myself.) Love your Spain pics... always wanted to visit.
