    The festival of San Fermín in the city of Pamplona (Navarre, Spain) is a deeply rooted celebration held annually from 12:00, 6 July, when the opening of the party is marked by setting off the pyrotechnic chupinazo,[1] to midnight 14 July, with the singing of the Pobre de Mí. While its most famous event is the encierro, or the running of the bulls, which happens at 8:00 am from 7 July to 14 July, the week-long celebration involves many other traditional and folkloric events. It is known locally as Sanfermines and is held in honor of Saint Fermin, the co-patron of Navarre. Its events were central to the plot of The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway, which brought it to the general attention of English-speaking people. It has become probably the most internationally renowned fiesta in Spain. Over 1,000,000 people come to participate in this festival.

    Thanks for the chuckles @John White, MBA :). I never went to San Firmino Festival (men stuff) but I went six times to LA TOMATINA - the world's biggest tomato fight which takes place on the last Wednesday of August in the small village of Bunyol near Valencia. Crowds throwing tomatoes to each other and dancing (like the Holi Festival in India, but with Tomatoes). The local farmers supply big trucks full of tomatoes. It's a great stress reliever party. Great fun. Pasarlo bien, Juan!

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD one of the most effective ways to break someone down and make them compliant - is to isolate them in their own head. Complete solitary lock down, including messing with the lights, timing of food and rest periods - usually with in two weeks; they are blathering just happy for the occasion to talk. Very few people can be left in their own head for too long.

    #8 Hi @Brian McKenzie again! "You will know you have made it when you start to dream in the other language." Man, is that a great one! Lovin' the humor! Oh..and do I have homework to do? ..hm.... Does "Traumatic Brain Injury Entropy" qualify as a language? I definitely believe so. My first book is the first "brain-injured author" book to be Reviewed by some Reviewers that took offense that I said, "Hum, drum. Drip, drop." too much. Off subject I know, but that was my language. It was my life, literally. I had a PICC line intravenous fluid going in my arm and to my heart for almost a frkn 4 years. No one but an anesthesiologist could have survived it, as I barely weaned myself off of the fluid before they wanted to stick the next needle 'permanently' in my upper chest. As if I was getting chemo for weeks. Nope! And you know what? If I could live on an iv for almost 4 years, the least that a reader could do is tolerate the "noise" that was unspoken background static to my brain. Heck, all a reader would have to do is shut the drn boook if they got tired of the silent noise! Hey! Epiphany! AHHhh! I think that just goes to show how GOOD the book actually IS written, since it does make the reader get just as frustrated as me. Hummmmmm.....https://youtu.be/4EVCZEtwe34 ? maybe the reviewer was giving me a compliment....wow.....

    they say that the average American uses less than two thousand individual unique words in conversation - and with the 6 second emoji crowd - significantly less than that. I used to fly at about 6000 words in Russian when in the thick of things, due to 10 years out of the military- I am struggling to get over half of that again. I am not sure if learning the language the first time was harder, or picking it back up after being out of it for a decade. You will know you have made it when you start to dream in the other language. Best of Success to you and your studies.

    I can absolutely relate to what both you and Jeffrey have gone through @Paul Walters. I'm still finding discarded post-it notes! I really love my language classes and even though I suffer from the same self consciousness that everyone goes through learning and speaking new languages I try my hardest to do so outside of class with other students or with friends from other countries... However ask me on a bad day and I'll probably respond in English!

    A few weeks after moving to Spain, I needed help buying a metro ticket. I walked up to several people and asked "can you help me?", but kept getting strange looks. After 10 minutes I realized that I had conjugated the verb wrong, and I had been declaring to a bunch of strangers "I can help me."

    Ahhh, @Lisa Gallagher, you have a love of the Great Highland Bagpipes and, therefore, being of Scottish descent, are by definition tone deaf. 🙉 I would bet that your grandmother ensured your grandfather wore undies with the kilt, otherwise you wouldn't be around to tell the tale. 🙈As for black pudding, yes the Kiwis are in on the act also, as I can well remember from my 5 years in exile there. But, believe it for not, animal blood is black when it's dried. Sometimes it's best not to ask what's in something, particularly after you've taken a mouthful. 🙊 The taste is not too bad, really, when it's fried and, as suggested in earlier comments, that's what tomato ketchup is for. 🍅 #17

    As far as I can remember, @Aleta Curry, the only thing that's really bitter in Scotland is the weather. 🌡They're a magnificently hospitable race (as long as you don't expect them to buy a round of drinks). As an example of bitter weather, I understand, from my few remaining relies, that summer was on a Wednesday last year. 😬 As for the thistles, the bees just love them, and beBees too, even here in SE Qld. Have a look at the buzz I wrote on this a while back.

    Brilliant @Ken Boddie, your stories always capture me! If my grandfather ever had to wear the kilt for a year, well my grandmother (yes a woman) never told his secret ;-) I really want to try haggis now- the wine was a blissful addition. I've never tried blood pudding- I once saw a woman in New Zealand make it, she used real sheep's blood? If that's the case, forget it. Visiting Scotland and my relatives that live there is on my bucket list. Bagpipes with Men dressed in kilts were played at my father's funeral years ago. Lovely, they truly are music to my ears.

    Sorry, @Lada 🏡 Prkic, I missed your reference to black pudding which used to be very popular in Scotland when I was a lad. I've also seen it, on occasions, for sale in the butcher shops here in Oz. My dad used to make it but, having seen what goes into it, I can't say I was ever a fan. 👎 But, as I said to James in #11 below, that's what tomato ketchup is for. 🍅 #6

    #21 Oh, I see! I've missed it somehow. I *did* see an article about eliminating certain personal pronouns from school correspondence because they were'n't sex- oh, I AM sorry - gender-neutral. A person with a working brain couldn't even begin to ponder the rightness or wrongness of the school board's decision - way before I even got to that, the only thing I could think was that it was a language lover's nightmare, and how on earth was it going to be reasonably implemented.

    It is one of the new 53 new gender ideology memes that is being passed around by the SJW's because binary sex is too hostile, more so that even being human is abhorrent - and lest you go searching for a penguin identity, it must have a special magical purple hue. And of course if you identify as a purple penguin then you are. - honestly, that is as far as I got with it, I left cartoons in childhood - I see no reason to revisit them now.

    Utah is chock full of the natural wonders in the landscape that inspire human art. These figures look to be from the ancient Anastazi people. Also known as "The Ancient Ones." Many centuries later their ruins were discovered by the Hopi who adopted many of their pictograph figures. Above you might note one that looks like a male figure playing a type of horn. This later became popularized by the Navajo as "Koko Peli" the mischievous romancer.

Es él que dejase llevar, que hace planes pero se involucra con el ambiente y es capaz de ser flexible y disfrutar lo máximo de su destino. Es él que vive con el verdadero espíritu wanderluster!

    #4 @Ken Boddie I think the East has already learned those lessons thousands of years ago...whether or not they apply those lessons now remains to be seen, as India is rapidly becoming Westernised, while keeping the caste system in place. The West also has a caste system, but it is "politically incorrect" or "conspiracy theory" to speak of it.

    I am an Eastern spirit living in a Western world. I don't want to see a uniformity of cultures. I LOVE diversity, I enjoy the fact that there are such differences. What a boring world it would be if we were all uniform. What limitations to growth if we meld into one common culture. When the world accepts differences, then and only then will we cohabitate in peace. Humans can call it religion, culture, or whatever they want, but we are ego driven with each ego seeking the like-minded to support that what they think and believe is the best. This group ego empowers to the point that they must push those beliefs on others, either through manipulation such as the Third Reich did or by dictating what is right or wrong as the state leaders are doing here in North Carolina. So many are working hard to instill their own sense of conformity that the fruit of these actions is frustration, then anger, then violence, until a winner is declared. The sad part is; there are no winners really, and the gulf widens.

    Beautiful post @Netta Virtanen. You really captured the magic of Myanmar through your lens. Part of me wishes more people can experience enchanted Myanmar, but part of me very much wants it to remain relatively untouched by Western and Eastern influences. When I see what is happening in Cambodia where from Siam Riep to Angkor Wat the roadside is full our ostentatious but tacky Chinese hotels, it destroys the magic. It is good to see relative stability come back to Myanmar after years and years of civil war.

    Western hotels skip the 13th floor.....in the Russian Realm and older Korea, they skip the forth - because the word for Four and Devil is entirely too similar. In rural South Korea, buildings do not even get built to the height to even have a tth floor.

    I was thinking about that date too but could only think about the 13th of Nov in Paris, I used to joke about that date too and dimsiss it all together now I am not too sure but you are right there is a lot of silly stuff associated with it especially when it is followed by the 14th.... :-)

    You nailed it @Ken Boddie. Last night when thinking of topics to write for today I noticed it was Friday 13th and thought for a moment I might write about it. I am glad I didn't as it would have paled in comparison to your article!

    In the Kingdom of Women
    In the Kingdom of WomenWe woke from our beds at 5:30am, our home for the night a little wooden guesthouse run by a family of Mosuo. We peaked through the window into the dark. The eerie calm and still waters of the lake reflected a moonless sky. Our hosts had prepared...

    #18 Not true; probably an image proliferated by christian zealots to disrupt the Celtic culture and discredit their beliefs. The women were the head of the clan and the most important decisions ultimately rested with the head Matriarch.

    #17 Surprising to hear about the Celts. I had images of boisterous men pulling women along the ground by their hair.

    @Dean Owen, fascinating glimpse into a different culture in another part of the world. The Celts also had a matriarchael society.

    Thanks @Lisa Gallagher. You are not missing much with the butter tea, it is not very pleasant! It is usually made from Yak butter or cow milk with tea leaves and SALT !

    Very interesting story @Dean Owen. I had no idea a society existed where people dont marry and women rule! What an experience you must have had. What is butter tea and did you like it? Photos are breathtaking and your right, the woman in the video, her voice was capturing. Thank you for sharing this

    This is a fascinating post. I love the photos and the Mosuo boatlady singing acapella. I hope you will share more about your travels.

    #10 Thanks so much Purnima. I am always in a dilemma as to whether of not to add lots and lots of photos, but for this post I felt less is more. Thanks for taking the time to read it.

    Thanks @Pamela L. Williams as always. It is amazing how few people can just sing, without any musical accompaniment, and be so engaging. Thanks for stopping by.

    What a lovely read @Dean Owen! The song at the end was one with the scenery behind the boat!

    Spectacular @Dean Owen, the singing boat lady actually put me in mind of the American Indians. Their medicine men/shamans often sang during rituals.

    #1 Thanks @Ken Boddie, will be a few more ethnic minority group posts in the coming months hopefully. I can't wait to see your post on Sumatra (and the Sumatran coffee report!). I have travelled quite extensively through Java, but have never been to Sumatra.

    I love this buzz, Dean - and the pics. The soulful, dirge-like, wail of the boat lady is the icing on the cake. China has so many ethnic minority groups, if the excellent museum in Shanghai is anything to go by. I have only been introduced to a few in an overly short guided tour there a couple of years back. I am advised by my Javanese relatives that the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra also have a matriarchal and matrilineal society. 🙆 I hope to go there this August. Although the wife comes originally from Sumatra, she is, luckily for me, from the south and not the west.
