Sometimes I get really lucky in my travels and stumble across unexpected town celebrations such as this one in Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain’s Basque region. I don’t know what the occasion was, but several of the city’s cultural groups turned out around the city’s historic district to perform traditional songs and dance. Afterward, one group appeared outside a bar to entertain patrons. What a special treat. It’s worth watching the video to the end.
Sometimes it’s just a craving for familiar food, other times it’s a desire to dine without having to translate menus or the demands of waiters or bartenders speaking a foreign language. See what brought me to this moment of weakness.
Market day is cheap entertainment. Stand back and watch the fish mongers skillfully fillet fish, sample cheeses and watch people make their selections of fresh produce. I love it!
