NOTES: Astero is not a regular Basque news service; if that is what you seek visit Basque News Sources.  There is also Euskal Etxeak Virtual, a Spanish online weekly of Basque news, provided by the Basque Government that you can subscribe to at The focused objectives of Astero are to communicate news and information of the Basque-American & Canadian community in English and to highlight an item or two of interest to Basque-Americans on a weekly basis.  Some of these articles will be original stories while others will be to draw your attention to an item of interest.  The hope is that you will find this beneficial.  Upcoming articles include:  How to find a Basque spouse; how to wear a txapela/boneta; what side of a chorizo to eat first . . . and much more.  On Egin--Enjoy!  Click on Hizketa to access our tri-annual newsletter.
