Pamplona is Beautiful

By | July 14, 2009

After the race I could notice even more the architecture of Pamplona and I was even more in love with the city. Again this was a place that I would like to study it’s history and return one day to fully appreciate it’s being. One thing that I did find out was Ernest Hemingway came to Pamplona for the first time, travelling from Paris, for the festival of San Fermin in 1923. He was so in awe by the city, the contest between man and bull ( which could lead to death) that he actually used it for the backdrop of his novel titles ” The Sun Also Rises”. Looks like I am going to need to read it when I get home! If you ever get a chance to be in Spain during Pamplona, you really must go even if it’s only for a night!
