The Funicular was our next stop as we headed up to the "Mirardor de Bilbao" the lookout of Bilbao. Upon the top of Mount Artxanda we were fortunate enough to get a stunning view of the surrounding Cantabrian Mountains along with the distant sea and airport in the background.

... and Jeanne and I headed back to the downtown area and met up with a former student of mine, Kalin, and her friend Julius. She's been studying in Valencia since January, and we were hoping that we could meet up while we were here.
