Day 7 – Espagne!

Oct 10, 2013 by

 

Rose early and set off for Bilbao.  Pat has a meeting with a potential client and Patrick and I decided to join him as none of has been to Spain before.  It was a 6 hour drive, but was quite beautiful once in Spain as we were driving through the very green Pyrenees.  Took us an hour to find our hotel (no map or GPS), but once we did, very happy to be here.  Of course, the main attraction here is Frank Gehry’s spectacular Museo Guggenheim Bilbao.  It did not disappoint.

All curves…

Spectacular central space!!

    Is this related to the NYC museum? Loved seeing Patrick in the Denison shirt! He’s good looking.
