BASQUE COUNTRY (PAIS VASCO)
Basque Country’s varied landscape resembles a nation complete in itself, combining cosmopolitan cities, verdant hills, industrial wastelands, and quaint fishing villages. Many believe that the strongly nationalistic Basques are the native people of Iberia, as their culture and language cannot be traced to any known source.
So, you’re going to run. No one wants to see you end up on evening news programs around the world, so here are a few words of San Fermines wisdom: 1 Research the encierro before you run. The tourist office dispenses a pamphlet that outlines the route of the 3min. run and offers tips for inexperienced runners.
II Do not stay up all night drinking and carousing. Not surprisingly, hung-over foreigners have the highest rate of injury. Experienced runners get lots of sleep the night before. Access to the course closes at 7:30am.
HGive up on getting near the bulls and concentrate on getting to the bullring in one piece. Although some whack the bull with rolled newspapers, runners should never distract or touch the animals; anyone who does is likely to anger the bull and locals alike.
UTry not to cower in a doorway; people have been trapped and killed this way.
Be particularly wary of isolated bulls they seek company in the crowds.
If you fall, stay down. Curl up into a fetal position, lock your hands behind your head, and do not get up until the clatter of hooves has passed.
