Running of the Bulls

After weeks of research, I decided on Spain for my summer vacation. I'll be going to Madrid, Barcelona, and I'm flirting with going to Pamplona for the San Fermin Festival (to run with the bulls). The reason why I'm flirting with Pamplona is because most of the rooms are sold out, the available rooms are going for $300-$600 at hotels where Norman Bates might have retired to, and I'll be running alone (the logistics of meeting up with the girlfriend afterwards are going to be next to impossible with the crowds).

I'm looking forward to the tapas / paella, drinks (cava and authentic sangria), flamenco shows, bullfighting, and taking in the scenery. I'm sure I can used to the laid back atmosphere, siestas, dinner at 10pm, and partying the night away like a rockstar.
