Urederra River

Most people visiting San Fermín party do it for fun, to meet other customs, experience the running of the bulls, see young people running on the Dead Man Corner ( Estafeta´s Curve) and so on. Ernest Hemingway enjoyed the San Fermin Festival and then he found out the way to relax among the beautiful natural places of Navarre. 

One of them was the Urederra River source and yesterday was chosen one of the Seven Natural Wonders of rural Spain. Is a wonderful place, full of charm. If you visit Pamplona during the SANFERMIN and you decide to stay longer, this will be worth visiting as is less than an hour from the capital, Pamplona.

Autum in Pamplona

During the last San Fermin Festival the recorded temperatures in Pamplona where lower than what we are use to. The records obtained from the meteorological stations of Navarra´s Government, have confirmed the cold temperatures in fact the recorded temperatures were the lowest in the past 30 years. Now we can understand why we were so surprised!  

However, in Pamplona, ​​autumn temperatures were very atypical. In September and October we have enjoyed higher temperatures than in July, during the San Fermin.

Chicago Bulls and San Fermín

Chicago Bulls, founded in 1966,  is the NBA´s professional basketball team based in Chicago, Illinois. This week they have unveiled their new 'spot' for the new NBA season, which has just begun. This promotional video that evokes the San Fermin festival, will be projected just the game and is aimed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the United Center Court.

In it, the bulls herd silhouette dominates the famous city in the northern of United States, where the shadows become reality with the roar of a herd that conquest its streets. The pitch black Bulls, 'assault' the different avenues to finally reach the United Center, home of the Chicago Bulls.
Creating a video for the games is a tradition for the Chicago Club, in fact this is their sixth project directed by Michelle Harris. It´s worth commenting that the previous one, was directed by the Wachowski Brothers Studio in 2006, very known for being the authors of The Matrix trilogy. 
I wish that this year the Spanish player Pau Gasol will help the team to be successful and decides to visit Pamplona and see a “real” running of the bulls from the Dead Man Corner (Estafeta & Mercaderes St).
