January 1 — Uno de Unero. The 1st of the 7 steps to 7 de Julio, which is the date of the 1st run of 2009. In Basque, today is known as “Urtarrilaren Bata,” so good luck with that.
So, it’s not long to go now. We’re going to watch some hockey (Flyers 20-10), and hopefully some Eagles NFL playoff football, and wait patiently until at least springtime. Just kidding, I’m already ironing pañuelos and white pants.
So, please feel free to email us with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) as you get ready for July. Friends helped us in the beginning, and we love to pass on the advice.
On 12/23/08, the Pamplona City Council announced financing for construction of the Pamplona San Fermin and Bullrun Museum. So, our usual and now seemingly pedantic goal is just to get into the newspapers. A museum? Now, I’m busy getting memorabilia for the Philadelphia Pena and Taurino Club display ready.
Seriously, it’s a giant box of stuff.
