Michael’s Travel Diary

Monday, 09 Jul 2007

Location: Pamplona, Spain

MapHey guys,

I managed to do the two things in Pamplona that I couldn't manage last year - see the bull fights, and get a balcony view of the run. The latter by far being the better - if you need more convincing, read Milo's version of the bull fight in the diary entry below. Pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Anyway, we dragged ourselves out of bed again today, and it appears as though my Spanglish was pretty good on the phone the other day... we got balcony tickets! We sat up on teh 3rd story balcony or about an hour or so before the run and then like that it was over - but we did have a fantastic spot and #9 Estafeta, looking down onto Dead Man's Corner.

The bulls came around the corner hard, and as always, smacked into the outside wall, creaming all of the wide runners in the path. It was a pretty ace view, and as Milo said on the way out, it was Mucho Tops.

We also managed to spot ourselves in a picture of yesterday's run in the paper this morning, so all decided to grab a copy for longevity.

In any case, I am happy to be headed home, not happy to be working tomorrow. It seems that no matter what I try, I just can't keep up with the Spanish when it comes to partying.

Hope you guys all had an eventful weekend as well!
