Pamplona running with the bulls

by Angus
(Edinburgh)

Hot sweaty Spanish nights, not sleeping because of the heat. Actually not sleeping because you are scared cr@pless about running with the bulls the next day but you realise your friends won't let you live it down if you don't. It is life and death, it is poetry- that is why Hemmingway wanted a piece of it.

Drinking Kalitmoxo and eating tapas serve as sleeping tablets but it's no escape for the task of the bull run. Check out the video, it captures the essence of the Fiesta San Fermin.





There are also lots of cool events as this fiesta lasts a week and the bull runs are at 830am so there's lots of time to PARTY !!

nonsense
by: John O'Rourke

ok this is the last bit of non-relevant, non-bull running nonsense to be spoken on this page.

bulls have a longer life span than mosquitos and so what may seem like an instant to a mosquito may actually seem like days...


The bull run is popular worldwide because it is culture, dancing, singing, drinking and fun. The video doesn't do this festival half enough justice.

don't be silly
by: Dave

Guys for fu€k sake - do you get upset every time you kill a mosquito ? just because a bull is more human like and you can see it's expressions doesn't mean it is any more cruel

San Fermin is both an historical & current affair and is great frickin' fun so stop being such a wet rag and enjoy life

Sophie u wrong
by: Angus

Sophie that is an immature attitude you have. The bulls are revered by the local farmers and unlike every cow you eat which is a number on a conveyor belt these bulls actually live and fight for life.

Hemmingway was in awe of the event and anyone who goes there thinks its amazing. Try it out and stop being such a baby.

mosquitoes
by: Sophie

I have never killed a mosquito or any other living thing actually.

Even if a mosquito is killed it is usually instant, bull fights last hours.

This is a horrible thing that people do. I hope they ban this barbaric dick measuring contest. People have died at this and every bull that runs is killed and a man is made look heroic. This is not a festival but a pathetic sign of the idiots in Pamplona.
