Gaupasa.
— 

Basque word [gah - oo - PAH - sah]

Literally: “night crossing / night spending”

It’s used even when we speak in Spanish because there’s no equivalent. “Gaupasa” is going out to party at night, and not coming back home until it’s breakfast time and the sun is well out.

College students also use the term - ironically - to describe a full night of study.
