Arrived in Pamplona!Posted: July 8, 2011 | Author: dswingle | Filed under: Uncategorized | Leave a comment »
After a 4 hour train ride this morning from Barcelona, we arrive in Pamplona. This place is crazy. It is a non-stop party.
As soon as we arrived at our hotel, we met David Mora, who is the matador at tonight’s bullfight. Of course we didn’t know who he was, but the concierge introduced us and we took the picture below. He’s staying in our hotel, and here’s a link to his site.
We headed downtown and snapped a few pics.
The pen where the bulls are kept prior to the run. They actually take them here in the middle of the night, through town.
“Dead Man’s Corner”. This is where most people get hurt. It is a very sharp, narrow 90 degree turn to the right. My plan is to start just after this, leaving about a 400M sprint to the finish!
Non-stop party! These guys have been at it since 8am.
The entrance to the arena. This is where the run finishes.
