I started reading The Basque Country but had to stop because it made me want to go there too much. Someday.

I’m realizing as I read along that I know very little of the Basques. Or Spain/France, for that matter. There’s a bit of dark romance in it all. I’m not even sure what that mean’s really or if that’s a saying. It just feels like a very real and deep culture there and a rootedness in the land and landscape and even a level of politics that I’m so unfamiliar with and perhaps missing. I find it interesting and unexpected that the author keeps using the phrase “indigenous culture.”
