Okay, I'm coming out of my temporary retirement to do a really short post. San Fermin has begun, and everyone in Pamplona is suffering from an acute case of temporary insanity. Lucky for me I live outside of Pamplona, which doesn't necessarily mean I'm entirely sane, but at least I get to sleep at night.
Anyway, the guys from El Diario de Navarra (the local newspaper) have asked me to do a special blog for their San Fermin website, so I'll be spending the next 8 days over there. I'm supposed to be giving people my own unique point of view about San Fermin, which means I'll actually have go to the party. I usually only go to a few things because I really hate crowds, but this year, in the name of blogging, I'll make an exception and go into the heart of it all. Come visit and leave me a comment, even if you're not taking part in this crazy festival. But don't expect to find me running in front of the bulls or taking my top off and jumping into the crowd from a fountain. I will, however, tell you about all the other people that are doing these crazy things, while I sit back with a nice cold beer and watch them.
Will I survive? Wait and see.
