Permitannos este pequeño chiste para introducir la historia de un “bonito blanco” o “bonito del norte” que decidió, al igual que muchos vascos a lo largo de siglos, dejar las tierras que baña en Golfo de Bizkaia (en este caso las propias aguas de este rincón del Atlántico norte) para lanzarse a la aventura y llegar, convertido en un precioso ejemplar, a las costas de Venezuela.

Un poco como Lope de Aguirre, que nació en, Oñate (Gipuzkoa) para, después de una aventura extraordinaria, acabar muriendo en una preciosa isla de la costa Venezolana llamada Isla Margarita.

La informacion ha sido recogida en varios medios internacionales, de los que les dejamos dos referencias.
