Fiesta de San Fermin
Conflicted in Pamplona: Conscience or Curiosity? This iconic celebration has changed since the days of Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises." Perhaps if he wrote his book today it might be called, "The Sin Also Rises" given the debauchery and the divided factions within Spain as to the culmination of each day's run: the bullfight. I did the run and I did my best to be an observer of this fantastic event that in the modern day offers perhaps more mayhem than magic.
