Bous a la Mar: Diving Bulls * Strange festivals


WE ARE EXPLORING TODAY...    
In Spain, there are many ways to be maimed or killed by bulls. But it is a free land, so it's up to you to pick your favorite.  
What's that? Ha ha, no: "None of the above" is not an option. For the discriminating gore victim, might we suggest Bous a la Mar -- the Bulls to the Sea? There is no "running of the bulls" here; it's nothing so uncouth as that. The objective of Bous a la Mar is simply to get a bull to dive after you into the ocean. Do not scoff. It is not such an easy task. You must drive the bull into a blind rage first, then, when he charges, you flee, ultimately leaping into the sea -- not to avoid him, you see, but in the hopes that he will follow. That's how you "win." To recap: You provoke a suicidal rage in this gargantuan missile of meat and pointy bits, then you need to outrun him, then you need to outdive him, then you need to outswim him.
