"The sun also rises"

In 98 I went out to Pamplona to run with the bulls (El Encierro) with some Aussie mates I was living with at the time in London. Anyone who has read Ernest Hemingway's " The sun also Rises" will have heard of this tradition.Anyway it was run last week and an young chap was gored in the neck and died. For those that have a weak disposition, "DON'T" watch these short clips.

Hi Simon
I was also in Pamplona in 98! Maybe we have raised a glass together!
The Encierro is madness especially at
6 o'clock in the morning...

Its a small world Thomas. I then followed it up with a trip to the October fest in Germany....Must admit I don't remember much of that though.
