It means that the Villa Savoye is right on target with the other large sets in this theme. Actually, minus the newly released Imperial Hotel, I have every Architecture set, and I believe this is a testament to the simplicity and grand idea of what the theme represents and who the theme caters too. Basically, the architecture sets are a Lego gateway drug - and something as simple as a 77 piece Empire State Building has helped me kindle a passion as a collector and ultimately an investor.
The menu looked good, but it seemed that they were fresh out of everything we had ordered. After what seemed like eternity, my food was airborne on a tray, but this was short-lived for one of my skewers fell on the ground. Needless to say the food was less than appetizing, and I decided to test out my Israeli attitude on the less-than-suspecting Spaniards.
The rest of the journey to the North was very pleasant and relaxing. Partly because of the unbelievable scenery, but The guggenheim and villa savoye because I had 2L of ice-cold water. We arrived in Bilbao early evening, with just enough time to hit the shower, get dressed, and go exploring.
Our stay in Bilbao coincided with an annual festival in the Basque Country called Aste Nagusia, a festival filled with great food, great music, great people, and Kalimotxo.
Kalimotxo is a special Spanish drink that consists of 1 part red vino to 1 part Coke. The night was spent listening to music, walking around the old city, and each of us purchasing bracelets later to become our Spanish nicknames while abroad.
The Guggenheim is situated on the Nervion River in Bilbao, and has re-vitalized the city since its opening in In fact, the Concert Hall was designed before the Guggenheim in Bilbao, but due to financial complications, the project was postponed. Not even a thousand words. Not for the Guggenheim.
Inside we walked through installations by Richard Sera, Anish Kapoor and others. Sera designed these almost impossible free-standing metal waves that seemed never-ending.
Kapoor had several installations, some of which dealt with wax, a new obsession of his.
We must have spent at least 6 hours and drawn a dozen sections and sketches during our visit, which felt like it lasted just 2 hours long. That night marked the end of Aste Nagusia. After grabbing some pinxos, the euskara word for tapas, the ceremonies began. Practically the whole population of Bilbao lined up on either side of the Nervion, watching a barge float down the river while playing slow overbearing music.
Not only did this show last more than twice as long, but the quality of the fireworks themselves were far better than anything I had ever seen. The next morning we awoke to the news that some classmates were feeling sick, most probably from food poisoning.
Eduardo Chillida-Leku is famous for his manipulation of stone and corten steel. The museum was actually more of an outdoor garden with his work sprawled out at every corner of the site. This was the first time we experienced the beach in Spain, and it definitely whet our appetite for more.
A few friends and I swam out to a floating dock halfway between the beach and a small island that was decked out with slides and diving boards. We headed back to Bilbao after several hours and prepared for our departure to the wine country the next morning.20th c.
