This will be a quick and dirty post on opening day of San Fermin.

The sedate streets of Pamplona turned into chaos starting at noon, when the rocket went off and everyone was sprayed with champagne, water or sangria. In between that chocolate or mustard powder was thrown in faces or at the blank canvas of a white shirt.

The celebration and drinking began in earnest. Just a few shots for you.

Quiet and sedate at first.

Town hall before the madness begins.

Shower of water.

Uh oh.

In full colours (Nicole S. came later!).

Guess what I’m drinking?
