“A giant puppet with its handlers at #Jaialdi, a Basque street party in downtown #Boise, Idaho. Many Americans think of #Idaho as potato country, but every five years, a wild and often hidden streak in Idaho’s history steps up to shout, “Ongi Etorri!” (That’s #Basque for “Welcome!”) The festival — one of the biggest Basque festivals outside of Europe — celebrates the roots that were sunk deep by a wave of Basque immigrants who arrived in the early 20th century. Today, Boise has one of the largest Basque populations outside of Spain. @fremson photographed the food, music and sporting events that make up Jaialdi while on #nytassignment.” By nytimes on Instagram.
