Running of the Bull, Huaraz
24 September, 2007, 07:10 pm in "Peru"
While walking down the main street in Huaraz (rainy day at 7PM) we heard a commotion and a lot of shouting. We turned in time to see a bull with a yellow bullfighter's spear sticking out of his back, running the wrong way down a busy one way street. Cars screeched to a halt as the bull ran straight towards them. At one intersection, two men narrowly avoided being gored by arching their back in an immitation of a bull fighter move. Behind the bull, a couple guys with ropes were madly running, trying to catch him.
They ran up the street and then we lost them. Of course, as always happens in these situations, we'd left the camera in the hotel.
