The BEC, after almost 40 years, has been recently moved from Bilbao to a nearby town called Barakaldo, but it's still calle...

Re: ANYBODY KNOWS ABOUT THE PRICES FOR SPAIN?

I got it! I got it!!! I GOT IT!!! ! Yihaaaaaa!!!!! First row ticket for the Bilbao concert :lol: I paid 85 euros (including taxes). Not cheap, but I would have paid even more to see the man live. Leonard Cohen in Bilbao, it's much more thrilling that I would have ever expected. Eagerly waiting for s...

Well, the very first time I heard "We'll go no more a-roving", it was Joan's version. And I loved it!
Now I'm waiting eagerly for Leonard's... :roll:

Tom & all, I've recently read about this issue in Spanish newspapers as well. As far as I know, Lorca was murdered by a right-wing Falangist squad, and buried at Viznar, a small village near Granada, along with an old schoolmaster and two anarchist bullfighters. The name of the canyon where his rema...

Hi, Makera Don't Basques have their own language/dialect? Also, don't some use a whistling 'language' in the mountains, to be heard accross the valleys? Or have I got it mixed up with something else. 'Whistling language to be heard across the valleys?' Err...no, ma'am. Sorry, ma'am, we use cell phon...

Hi, Makera OK, problem solved. Thank you for your explanations and your kind --and undeserved-- compliments about my English. As for my 'in-joke' regarding "pedantry", I must explain.(...)
