the matter of bulls in my country, I am deeply ashamed, I sincerely put that band of drunks to run in front of a pack of yamahas 1100 piloted by crazy bikers inside a closed park if strong feelings is what they want. We must ban bull shows now! in this country! shame! Evil or Very Mad

and I do not like Bilbao especially, having an old town too full and a Guggenheim museum too empty, it is contrary to my interests.....
I would not be able to tell you anything in Bilbao, it is far enough from my house in Asturias, so I go very little by there, and close enough so that when I go I do not need to stay to sleep, so I can not really recommend anything interesting to you, I am sorry!

The Bulls! No, it's not part of my culture. Believe me, it's closer to the North American culture of Mr. Hemingway, or in this part of the country, here his taste is very minority and very associated with the fascist side victor in the civil war!!

Tbh we don’t want to go to Bilbao either. Not at least until the last day as we will catch the ferry from there. We would though like to be within 50 miles or so of it so we do not have far to travel on the last day. If we had more time we would have liked to travel further west towards La Coruna but that will be for another trip now.

Back on the road again after having to stay put for a few days while my wife got over a stomach bug. We are now up to Miranda de Ebro where we will stay for the night and then onto Bilbao tomorrow.

We may nip out and do a line tonight !

Miranda de Ebro, a small industrial city in northern Spain, was once known for small blood sausages, a three-day fiesta after Holy Week and its strategic location as highway stopover - on the way to somewhere else.
But now the city has a new distinction: cocaine capital of Europe.

The United Nations World Drug Report this year ranks Miranda de Ebro as the city with the highest incidence of cocaine use in Europe and second in the world after New York, with a rate nearly five times as high as in St Moritz, London, Zurich and Madrid.

The city's 40,000 residents, mostly factory workers and small shopkeepers, are astonished by the findings. They can not understand how the UN study of waste water could have found a consumption rate of 97 lines a day for every 1,000 people, in a city whose big event is the traditional Sunday evening stroll.
I have to say looking at the place I find that hard to believe Shocked

Up at Bilbao to catch the ferry. Lousy day with rain since we arrived at port. Unfortunately I got here a little earlier than expected Embarassed




Never mind gas burner out and a cup of PG on the go Thumbs Up
Complete opposite of the weather in Miranda last night



I have also just broke the news to Deb that we will be making a bit of a detour when we get off the boat tomorrow night to Berkshire to collect the Foxwing ! That’s gone down well Whistle

Ferry arrived and unloaded. Just waiting to board, weather atrocious. I feel sorry for those getting off. Just seen a chap in a convertible old Renault with a number 46 on it ( looks like a historical race car) with no roof. Poor fella was soaked Shocked

Really I think your surprise in terms of weather, I guess it is a myth more than those that characterize the Spanish state, that is always sunny here .... but the reality is that nothing has in common the climate of Miranda de Ebro with that of Bilbao, Cantabria or Asturias, where I live, what you call northern Spain is very extensive and also has the peculiarity of having a mountain range through the medium that totally conditions the climate, on the Corniche Cantabrica, which is where you are now, which runs from Irún to La Coruña and is the entire strip of land limited to the north by the Cantabrian Sea, the Atlantic Ocean in reality, and to the south by mountains, that has that climate exactly that you are suffering today the greatest part of the time, a much more similar climate to that of your beloved British islands than to the topic that is understood by Spanish climate, nothing has in coincidence with the one of the plateau or the southernmost parts that you still consider north of spain as it can be Miranda de Ebro and even the south of the Basque Country or Navarre, with climates already clearly Mediterranean or contiental, with very hot summers and dry winters or with snow. Here is the myth with London, here it is thought that it is a city that is always raining ... instead, and the average rainfall is 621 mm per year. While Gijón (Asturias where I live) has average rainfall of 827 mm.That is why you appreciate that deep change of landscape that goes from brown to green that gets stronger the further west towards Asturias, our rainfall is very high and it is never hot, except for four very exceptional days in summer, as well as London for example. So next to the bulls, another topic that we often support the Spaniards Whistle ... because, believe me, there are many more!!

Have a good trip on the ferry back home!! Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Thankyou Ruben. Where I live in Burnley we have very wet weather compared to down south. It is also a very damp climate that is why Cotton weaving was based there and in the surrounding towns. The damp climate helped to prevent the yarn from snapping.
Anyway on the boat now just going through the bay of Biscay.


I have a confession, when we boarded I was put on an open deck in the pouring rain and thought o god the sunroof ! I will have a swimming pool in the passenger footwell when we get off tomorrow night so quickly thought on my feet and said “ I have a roof tent which will be damaged with all the salt water on the open deck and I specified that I wanted a covered deck “ I was told to park out of the way for 5 mins then I would be taken below. Whilst waiting a defender with exactly the same RT came onto the open deck parked up and they got out. I could see the crew looking so I thought the game was up but no they send me 2 decks down and I am now parked in a large space of my own with a couple of lorry’s and 2 yatchs Embarassed I will take a pic when we get off, it’s quite a surreal sight a Disco and 2 yatchs Thumbs Up





This is where I am posting from on the top deck (10) our cabin is on deck 6 with the lorry’s
