They sometimes kill a sheep or lamb for the house. They learnt Spanish at school. They can express themselves better in Basque. They used to make coal and take it by mule to Pamplona. They women would help to unload the sacks in the streets, and what they earned from that was for their own expenses. In Iragi they Basque is help in esteem but not in Eugi. They always speak in Basque at home. The Basque has been lost in Esteribar. The Basque which is learnt in Pamplona is difficult. The best Basque is spoken in Navarra.
