The problem is where to start! There are so many cool things happening here. it's hard to figure out at what point to start describing what I have been experiencing. I suppose the most interesting part is the variety of people .. Thousands come out and walk the streets between 8 o'clock and 10 o'clock.mostly young men and woman but also couples , families and the elderly. The restaurants aren't open until 8 o'clock though 😞 . The Plaza de Castillo has many cafes that are outside with tables under umbrellas which is crowded by 5 o'clock with people drinking talking , people watching other people and having a good time. I suppose the cafes are there as a warm up until the resturants open ? If so very clever . My hostal is one street off the Plaza castillio which is convenient to go have a bite to eat or sit and watch all the people. I might even have a beer.
The Irun bar and restaurant are on the Plaza. The Irun is famous as being Hemingway's favorite bar to hang out while he was in Pamplona. There is a life-size statue of him in the bar which
I'm sure he would enjoy being there until eternity.
I tried to put videos into this blog without much success so what I will do is post the links to the videos I've taken for YouTube and if you feel like copy pasting into your browser to view

My street in action
Did I mention the music? Yep there's music all kinds. There's bands playing contemporary music in the center of the Plaza , theres violinist on one of roads reading into the Plaza , theres actors wearing suits of armour and damsels in distress.
Why the heck walk for six weeks when theres Pamplona! (Just kidding)
