Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.
Festival of San Juan see many different events and one of the most exciting if your Spainish is the bull running.
This event used to take place in the streets of the old town but now it is undertaken in a large car park with steel cages around the outside. The gaps in the cages are wide enough to let a person through but not a bull.
The bulls are in the arena for around 5 mins and a number of young men join them and get chased by the bull. The men are carrying rings which are large enought to slip over the horn of the bull if they get close enough. When they are successful they usually get a big round of applause.
NO Bull were hurt in this event.
Thanks for looking, and worth going large to see the expressions
