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. Â This place is crazy. Â 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. Â Of course we didn’t know who he was, but the concierge introduced us and we took the picture below. Â 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. Â They actually take them here in the middle of the night, through town.
“Dead Man’s Corner”. Â This is where most people get hurt. Â It is a very sharp, narrow 90 degree turn to the right. Â My plan is to start just after this, leaving about a 400M sprint to the finish!
Non-stop party! Â These guys have been at it since 8am.
The entrance to the arena. Â This is where the run finishes.
