IT’S A LONG WAY FROM TIPPERARY TO SANTIAGO-Days 118-119;
Walked alone through hills passing young guys from Canary Islands in their tent and stopped in Larrabezco for excellent local version of tortilla patata; layered as sandwich with cheese tomato and lettuce.
The 3 German sisters showed up and we walked together off and on on urban road before going over hills to Bilbao.
I saw beautiful restaurant with gorgeous view and invited German girls to join me but matradee was rude so we left and ran into Anka so had nice lunch of delicious pintxos and wine. And flan with cake and cream and burnt sugar too. Fantastic.
After showers at wonderful Gallery Botxo Albergue we walked to museum and then through town back to old town and had nice Italian dinner and wine.
Tough walk out of Bilbao but we caught impromptu ferry and then I lost girls taking shortcut but eventually ended at beautiful beach near Pobeña and I went in for quick dip but red flag was up.
Girls went on but I Stayed at Municipal Albergue in Pobeña.
