There is place where you can store your packs for 3 euros for 24 hours. Its very safe and everyone puts their stuff there. Its open 24 hours and it works kinda like some train station storage. You have to check it in with one of the attendents and he palces it in the back so that you cant get to other bags and people cant get to yours. It is run by the city at the City Hall.
It gets cold at night. Some people had sleeping bags. Dont carry anything on you that you wouldnt want stolen, broken, or stained. It really is one massive druken party.
If you have a sleeping bag check it in at the City Hall during the day and get it out for the night. It gets really cold at night, i mean freezing. Those who had sweaters or sleeping bag were fine but i just about died. However, alot of people dont sleep at all. The parting is just as big at 6 am in the morning as it is at 10 pm.
WATCH YOUR STUFF. If you dont watch it, it will get stolen guarenteed. Your stuff wil be alright if you just hang on to it and dont assume "It will be fine."
O yeh a big misconecption for Running The Bulls. You cant just start out anywhere on the track. You have to start out in the square packed into this fenced in area. The police clear the streets and hundreds of people are focred out of the track who think they are going to run. Once it is cleared then everyone from the square clears out and fills up the track. I was lucky and when the police cleared us out i hauled ass back around and barely squezzed into the square. And when i say say barely i mean barely. We had a group of 5 of us and 2 didnt get to run beacuse they were forced out. The rest of us got lucky and saw some peole running trhough a back alley and we just follwed.
Damn i loved the San Fermine festival
