    ps. Will be interesting to see how Zubi will handle his job. Wish him all the luck for the next 6-7 years (given he'll stay for that amount of time, of course).
    Didn't know Phil, but if you asked me that name just sounds Castillian to me, it doesn't look or sound particularly vasco to me.

    A bit of a side note, but in bcn there was a metro stop called Urgell, which when you pass through it is pronounced very oddly on the train. Is that a catalan name? Or just a fucked up speaker.

    Maybe it's just me then, but I've always found names like "Aitor" more Vasco than anything else.

    Haha, yeah. It's pronounced Urgelj with a really soft L and a tiny bit of j in it. Urgell is actually a Catalan county between Cerdanya and Pallars, and I suppose derives from the 800's bishop Felix d'Urgell.

    Yeah Aitor is, but then so is Iker and he isn't vasco.

    I liked bcn metro and its crazy names. Made it hard to know where I was going so it added an element of surprise to each journey.

    I love that about the Barcelona metro, in Madrid every stop is so obvious!
