Tapa Crawl

Last night we walked about a mile in the misty rain into old town Bilbao where we found tapa bars galore. In the Basque provinces tapas are called pinxtos.  Here are samples of pinxtos that we had for the evening.

By the time we headed home the rain subsided and our smiles stuck for the 1.2 mile walk home.  So Good!
