Hey,
Congratulations on getting Vitoria established on the Napoleonic re-enactment calendar. As you know
Spanish Napoleonic re-enactment has come a long way in recent years. Particularly over the bicentennial
years - but to win over the people and council of Vitoria-Gasteiz ( in the Basque country, no less ) to the
spectacle of Napoleonic re-enactment - is nothing short of a miracle !!!
I know Spain and the Basque country has it's problems, particularly since the credit crunch with
youth unemployment unacceptably high and although no one can pretend that extra jobs will be
created by such events, it will nevertheless boost the local tourist industry with the possibility of
new jobs being created either directly or indirectly as a result.
Also ( if nothing else ) such re-enactments, tend to throw people ( in another world. a new time
dimension ) where for at least a day or two - they can forget about their present day cares and
wants.
The first in the field and the last from the Taverna
