Pintxo, anyone?

A picture is worth, well...

At the start of our journey of a thousand steps. Or at least a long airline trip.

A wet and shiny Bilbao (in the old section)

As we stumble upon the start of a Palm Sunday processional for Semana Santa.

As you can see, it's an odd mix of really old religious customs and some, um, newer technological additons. (I couldn't get a good picture, but there was a woman with inch and a half, hot pink nails... WWJD with those?)

To show not only the religious fervor that is a part of Holy Week celebrations, but also that it was sunny, if only for a few minutes.

And, just so you don't think that we're spending all our time (though admittedly a lot of it) chasing KKK-looking religious cofradías through the city in the rain, check out our welcome sign at the Instituto!

And, in case you're concerned that Steve isn't getting a chance to take lots of his own pictures to share with you soon...

Hasta pronto, amigos!
