It's festival time here (Terceira), and "bull running" in the streets is done in every town. They do however, have the bull(s) on very long ropes (100m) with six chaps on the other end, to try and reduce the worst excesses, when the bull gets someone: Its amazing how ones jumping abilities improve (ie vaulting garden walls), when a ton of snorting, horned muscle comes charging down the street!

Today is more subdued, we are going on a guided walk around the "world heritage" city of Angra do Heroismo: Hopefully no bulls will be hiding in the side streets.
