Partying in Ea (Ea, Pais Vasco, Spain)

Of all the places I’ve stayed, Basque Country definitely takes the cake for ‘craziest’. It seems like each day there’s a new fiesta. The only thing I found that they love more than partying, was the alcohol they brought to the parties. The popular drink? Kalimotxo, 50/50 Coca-Cola and cheap euro wine.

In 2012, there was a party in the village I was staying in, so I decided to go hang out with some of the friends I made. The stage was set up in the center of town in the frontennis court and everyone was dancing around. It was so funny to hear ska being played live. This is what they listen to. There were many nights spent running around listening to this style of music.

I loved the people. Everyone was so friendly and tried to get me to dance. Even without speaking English well, they dragged me around and showed me Basque Culture. Which, to be honest, seemed to consist of endless laughing and relaxing with one another. The teenagers I hung out were always laughing and telling jokes. I remember that more than anything else.

The parties lasted through entire nights and usually didn’t end until the people dispersed. Entire villages would swell with massive amounts of people, then drain out in the morning. It was a lot of fun to experience a different culture that we don’t have here in the United States. The Basque people are fantastic at throwing parties!
