Smithsonian Folklife Festival Featuring Basque Culture and the Music of California
Each summer we make it a point to check out the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This year featured the Basque and the Music of California.
Basque cuisine is interesting. We ordered talo con chistorra, a grilled paprika pork sausage. Different.
They had a kid’s section where the kids made paper whales. Kind of like origami but with about four folds total. Najwa didn’t seem too impressed. I didn’t even bother taking a picture of the whale. Anyway.
The Basque are known for their carvings and stone work, They had one of their renowned artists carving up some stuff. That was cool.
