Bilbao is the capital of the province of Biscay, an autonomous community in the Basque province. Formerly a heavy industrial town, this metropolitan area was transformed--revitalized, as they describe it. Usually associated with the 'Guggenheim Effect', the city delivered beyond the iconic structure's symbolic association by winning the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize (reads: the Pritzker of Urban Planning) at the World Cities Summit in May 2010.
More Pictures, hopefully soon. :)

This city will be Wander Iggy's home por seis meses.
El Museo de Guggenheim. This makes for Miss Iggy's second Guggenheim museum
and second Gehry sighting. This picture was taken from the other side of the river.
Can you see the Maman as well?
Just across the Guggenheim is our new hang out: the University of Deusto.
Oh my, that's a very big gracht. :)
'Gee, he's not a puppy anymore.' :) Or, as the Spanish call it, el perro.
