Hola Bilbao!

Hola Bilbao!

MONDAY, 2 FEBRUARY 2009

So we landed Sunday evening in a grey, rainy Bilbao. Off to the screening of The World Unseen, which was sold out. The audience clapped and whistled at the end (I think because they liked it, not because it had ended!) and we had  a great Q&A. It was also great to see the film with subtitles. ‘Buenos dias, Amina!’ ‘Ola, Sargento Stewart!’. And I had mentioned how sorry I was that the Guggenheim Museum was closed on Monday. Straight after the Q&A one of the audience members came and told us they had arranged for a friend of theirs, a restorer at the Guggenheim, to give us a private tour Monday morning! We were overwhelmed by the generosity, and even more overwhelmed by the museum. Truly stunning, and there was a Cy Twombly exhibition that was breathtaking and one I’ll remember always. So a once-in-a-lifetime morning, especially when combined with the equally unusual sight of Hanan eating a tortilla and ham sandwich for breakfast instead of fruit and orange juice. When in Rome…

    I'm jealous of you that you went to many places,So…how about China, a country fulling of antique beauty and modern. In my country, tea takes the place of your coffce ,which you can taste and I make the promise that you will like it and you can also use our traditional chopsticks and foods. In there,maybe you'll miss the bread and the beef in your city.
    I'm in Shanghai ,so, how about China, Shanghai next step?
