We had our first concert in Spain on Saturday night - it worked out really well inspire of the language barrier - the audience loved what we do and we've been offered lots more gigs. A good experience all round.
Then we had an amazing day in Bilbao yesterday - the weather wasn't too hot which made it even more enjoyable.
Then the fireworks started just behind us - we sat in the middle of a roundabout and watched a great display. Then wandered back to our car afterwards along with all the Promenaders .
Earlier in the afternoon we went to see Cirque du Soleil - I've been wanting to do this for so many years and it was every bit as good as I had imagined it. Just quite simply WOW!!!!!
Cameras were not allowed in the auditorium so I've taken these photos from their website and from various newspaper reviews.
The show was Dralion
|Grace and elegance personified|
|The clowns were so funny - slapstick at its best.|
The colour was exciting, there was continuous movement and each act was better than the one before it.
|All the children's' favourite - the lady in blue on the silk scarves |
flying around from the ceiling.
And of course for me, the singers and the musicians were the creme de la creme.

A wonderful experience. So so happy to have seen them - and in a foreign city too.
A day to be remembered for a long time to come.
