We’re going to collectively pat ourselves on the back today–actually, let’s make that a hearty, big-handed Basque slap on the back–after finding out that we’ve been mentioned a few times recently at other online sites dedicated to all things Basque.

First of all, our longtime friends at EuskalKultura.com featured a piece on our ongoing series of stories from Basques in the United States, including interviews with author Koldo San Sebastián and the Center’s Publications Editor Daniel Montero. These stories have enjoyed a tremendous reception from all of you out there and we couldn’t be happier to share them with you. Read the full story here.

Next up, we also got a very nice mention in a great article on Basque-American news outlets by basquewhalers.info, saying that we offer “always really interesting stuff.” Thanks a lot Basque Whalers, and may you enjoy smooth sailing in your quest for terra firma!

Finally, a recent post of ours on the replanting of a sapling from the famous Tree of Gernika on the grounds of the Nevada State Arboretum at the University of Nevada, Reno, was reproduced here at About Basque Country. Eskerrik asko!

A big thanks to all these sites and please check them out as well. And if you have any thoughts or feedback on our blog, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Come on folks, don’t be shy!
