I am so proud of all my Idaho Basque friends! Not so long ago I told you about Itxaso and Rosa Mari Arrubarrena’s interview for Euskadi Irratia, where they talked about how they experience life in Idaho vs. the Basque Country. Then last night, right after shamelessly wishing me a Happy Birthday one day later, my friend Iñigo Serna tells me he will be doing an interview this weekend with Onda Vasca for their segment “Vascos con Jetlag”.
Iñigo will be on the air on Sunday, October 2 at 8 am, Basque Country time (Saturday, October 1 at midnight Mountain Standard Time). During the 15-minute long interview (which will be conducted in Spanish), he will talk about his adventures in Idaho, and how his life has changed since he moved to the United States, first to Boise, then (unfortunately) to Moscow, a few years ago. Luckily, his wife’s family lives in Boise and they often come down from Moscow to visit, so we get a chance to hang out at the Basque Center three or four times a year.
These days Iñigo works as an Assistant Professor, Clinical Track, Spanish, for Washington State University (WSU). He is from Bilbao, Bizkaia, and finished his undergraduate studies at UPV (Basque Country Public University) in 1995 with a bachelor in Human Resources. He came to the United States in 2001 and graduated from the University of Idaho in May 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and Spanish. He continued his studies at Washington State University and got his master’s degree in Spanish Literature and Languages in May 2007.
