Yo Yo,

After San Sab it was off to Pamplona for the San Fermin Festival which includes the running of the bulls. We were working here for a company called PP Travel and we basically spent a day and a half setting up tents, then served breaky to the campers for the next 10 days.

All the bottles end up broken on the ground, so we were standing on 3 inches of broken glass, squashed with 14000 others like the most epic mosh pit youve ever been in. At times my feet didnt touch the
