Bilbao: Looking out for the Cigar Girls

By: Anders Frejdh
Pierce Brosnan The World Is Not Enough Bilbao
Never did I know that Bilbao would be a Bond location two years after I had been there in August of 1997.

It was a nice surprise when I first saw The World Is Not Enough (1999) because I recognized myself as James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) walks towards the office where the Cigar Girl (Maria Grazia Cucinotta) is waiting for him.

I walked on the same street passing The Guggenheim Museum when I was there!
