Spanish students went to Picassent in the morning. A typical lunch of the region was already waiting for them: sandwiches with tomato, jamón serrano (traditional spanish ham) and cheese. There were also cold drinks to help them to stand the heat.
After lunch, the guide of the group of students (a boy with origins from Picassent) has explained the essential of the party: in 4 streets that form a rectangle they let running 5 or 6 bulls. On these streets there are numerous bars and people, after watching if there´s no bull, have to run from one bar to another. In each of the bars, they put some kind of "showers", so everyone always gets wet if he/she wants it or not. The guide has given to the students an important Spanish class – at the same time class of language and of Spanish culture.
The party started at two: the students entered to the first bar, to dance and taste the typical drinks of the region. They were running, all wets from one bar to another until three and a half, when "els bous al carrer" ended. But this doesn´t mean they returned to Valencia at three and a half! They stayed all afternoon enjoying this cheerful atmosphere!
For this group of students from Costa de Valencia, Spanish school, this Spanish class was fun and will remain unforgettable. Not only they had a posibility to learn the language, but also a very important aspect of Spanish culture.
