End of the blackout. On Wednesday I flew from Bruxelles to Santander. I spent one night there, then I moved to Kobetamendi, just over Bilbao, where I attended the BBK Live.
Before sharing some thoughts on that, I will just add a brief final note on Bruxelles. Looking back to the past there are so many interesting people I met and then only rarely I have been able to keep the relation going over time. I hope I can stay in touch with some of the people I’ve met in Bruxelles.
Now a comment on the Basque Country. The BBK was as good as expected. I went to see The Gift, The Band of Skulls, Ben Howard, The Cure, Blic Party, Noah and the Whale, Mumford and Sons, Radiohead, Keane, Garbage, Sum 41. I camped with five friends I met there. We had no shower, no electricity for four days: just heaps of Red Bull – and other stuff. I am now in a small pension in Bilbao and have no plans but wandering about this beautiful place for the next few days.
