... it is so lovely having no set itinerary and doing whatever, whenever, it pleases us. Pito discovered the Running of the Bulls Festival will be on in Pamplona as we swing past and to quote him 'It's like every boys dream to run with bulls' so off we will go to Pamplona.

The only difference to English fairs was the temporary bull-ring erected in one of the town squares. It comes as a flat-pack assembly. Apparently IKEA are creating a smaller home-version. But one of Eugenio’s neighbours asked him a few days later who I was. She said ...
