It's that time of year again. The running of the bulls begins in Pamploma and marks the beginning of the festival of St. Fermin.
You can watch it on rtve.
Details (in English) of the festival are here... http://www.sanfermin.com/index.php/en/

I saw of course on TVE and already with 6 bulls weighting half a ton each let go on the streets of Pamplona, the encierro left two American and British wounded with horns and 8 others lesser wounds.

I love tradition even if risky but better on TV and see the warriors on the streets.

A quick and clean run this morning. Fortunately no one was injured today and the Spanish press describe it as "limpio".
Even although it was limpio I cannot understand why so many people put themselves needlessly at risk; not to mention the fear it must cause in the poor animals.

You can watch live via http://www.rtve.es/noticias/san-fermin/ as well as videos of the previous days' runnings. I missed it this morning, but did watch the first two days. Fascinating!

Saludos, MadridMan

Good running-of-the-bulls this morning. I've yet to see one this year where the bull gets separated from the rest and causes havok, but maybe it'll happen still.

Saludos, MadridMan
