Little over a week away from the end of his stay in Friesland, Eneko Aizpurua has completed his second public activity. At the NHL Hogeschool in Leeuwarden, he met students and teachers for a lecture about Basque literature and culture. At the event he also read some literary texts in Basque, which were translated into Frisian by the journalist and Basque speaker Onno Falkena.
Next week, Eneko will be returning home to the Basque country, armed with a ton of experiences, a lot of new Frisian friends and inspiration for the novel that he’s already started to write. “I am very grateful for the opportunities I got in Leeuwarden,” he said. “I can’t believe how fast these past weeks have gone by.”
