Pamplona, Spain

The main reason we went to Spain was to go to Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls.

Here the three of us are waiting to watch the other three in our group who are running with the bulls.

This is how my sister filmed the race. There were people on the fence and people sitting on the ground. We were the group that had to lean over the people on the ground to be in between.

And here is our view. If you look closely you can actually see one of the bulls. One of his legs is by the guy’s (with the jeans) legs.

And once a few people cleared out (after the bulls past) I could get this shot to show some of the last runners going by. Those on the fence in front are the medics who are standing by waiting to help those who got hurt.

After the race we got to walk around the city. We saw the statue of the running of the bulls.

And in case you were wondering, even the little kids on the street were dressed for the occasion. It was cool to be there and be part of it. It was neat to be there for the Running of the Bulls.
