“Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”
La Curva, San Fermin Encierro, July 9, 2010
I came. I ran. I'm alive - perhaps more so than ever.
On Saturday July 10th and Monday July 12th, I participated in the famous San Fermin Encierro - the Running of the Bulls. I'll write much more about that when I get a chance.
In the meantime, above is a picture of the Friday July 9th run of the bulls and corredores going into La Curva (aka Dead Man's Corner). I took this from the balcony location I arranged through Pamplona Man, an Irish ex-pat living in Pamplona and a really good guy. His company, San Fermin Travel Central is the one who you should talk to if you ever visit Pamplona.
Also, a little shout out to the Frenchmen I shared the balcony with - hope you had a great time in Pamplona guys!
Stay tuned for more on San Fermin when I get caught up. The experience here was extraordinary.
