Another Reason I'd Rather Be in Bilbao

As a side note, people in the Basque country (Euskal Herria) think of their 'nation' as Basque, while they live in "the Spanish State". So saying Bilbao (or Bilbo) is in Spain, is like saying Belfast is in England. Even the people who want to continue with Spanish government would say they live in the Basque region('nation') of Spain (the governmental entity).
