I am a 15 year veteran of Pamplona and the festival of SanFermin. My husband and I go every year and we always take our children with us and spend the entire 9 days of festival in Pamplona. We love the festival and love the town and the people of Pamplona and have made many friends.
We like to help newbies from other countries get the most out of their time in Pamplona and understand and enjoy the festival and the city.
Now that the sanfermines, 2009, are rapidly trampling upon us, many of you have written to us in the past weeks, inquiring about our own opinions about running with the bulls in Pamplona. Many of you have asked if the bullruns are really dangerous??!! We can tell you from the experiences of many of our Pamplona friends and family: THE BULLRUNS IN PAMPLONA ARE NOTREALLY DANGEROUS.....THEY ARE REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY DANGEROUS! Included here are two photos that tell the story quite well, results of the bullrun of July 12, 2007.
