End of semester one and bull-running festival9 February 2017
Although I have had to say goodbye to a lot of my friends after the January exam period, we had a week full of amazing experiences, celebrations and trips and now the second term is in full swing with some new friendships starting to form. My flatmates and I had become like a family to each other and it was so hard seeing them leave. However, the people that I am living with now are more than nice. I am such a lucky girl!!
Apart from the farewell dinners and the awesome end-of-exams parties, some of my friends and I decided to have a spontaneous weekend trip to Sagunto, where we enjoyed one of the most distinguished Spanish traditions – bull-running. I had never seen something so spectacular in my life – an impressive amount of people watching how others challenge the bull and run after it, assuming a high risk for their own life. During the day we visited the remains of the castle in Sagunto as well as the beautiful Roman theatre (where we tried to do a little round of karaoke singing 😀 ).
And in order to get a feeling of what it is to be in a cage and face a bull with burning horns, here are some pictures from the festival itself:
