There is a certain tradition that when in Bilbao (or any other part of the Basque Country) it is necessary to participate in. At midday, after a long morning of walking and sightseeing, go into any bar and you will come across a sight like this:
Bars and cafés in the Basque Country offer an incredible variety of finger food called 'pintxos' to accompany your beer or wine. So, I believed it to be my civic duty to 'do as the locals do'!
Txikito (small wine) and pintxo
There are competitions to see who prepares the best pintxos - and they are taken very seriously!
As it's Friday, I'll offer you a txikito and pintxo to start the weekend off well!
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, have a great weekend!
