Once again the San Fermin festival is underway in Pamplona, Spain. Dating from the 16th century and known worldwide for the harrowing running of the bulls over the city’s cobbled streets and criticized for its bullfights, the nine-day festival kicked off in a packed city square Monday with people dousing one another with wine and water. It concludes at midnight on July 14 with singing by candlelight.
