Found this guy on Facebook who does these little documentaries about people in the countryside if France. Priced to track him down on YouTube and it's just some really nice viewing smile
All the ones of Facebook where dubbed over in English but not the YouTube ones strange enough

And in between are the Basque, who's language is a blend of both!

Basque is its own language. An ancient one, not a blend.

I thought today all the Basque were in WY and Montana herding sheep.

A lot of Basque here in Montana, a lot of history of them from the early years and heritage of Mt.

When I lived in the Pyrenees I got to know several Basques who herded sheep or worked dairy cows in the west before coming back home. Tough people.

And yes... Basque is one of the oldest languages in the world and has no relation to any other. I know alot of words and short expressions but to speak it without learning it from birth is impossible.
