Default Do you think these people look courageous?

For me they don't.

Of course they don't! They are scared to death. That is what they are playing at, dancing with danger.

It really is a very silly thing to do.

This bull looks comfortable:

Being born and raised on a Cow farm in Yorkshire I respect bulls and the damage that they can do. It never ceases to amaze me how many Spaniards see them as source of entertainment and then, with surprise, claim it to be a 'tradgedy' when somebody is injured. A bit like potholers getting stuck and then expecting somebody to put their own life at risk to rescue them, I say if you put yourself in this situation you take your chances.

My daughter's friend has just joined us from watching the first two days of the San Fermin during which she had her bag with her passport in it stolen and cut her foot on some glass from a broken bottle. She says the atmosphere was quite intimidating and not the experience she was expecting at all.

Navarra is a beautiful area but I would advise giving the San Fermines a miss.
