Latest Update from Pamplona:
- It might be a little way off but if you're going to plan an exciting New Year's Eve, consider Pamplona. Centred around the old town, everyone dresses up, carnival fashion and wear masks or large papier mache heads caricaturing politicians, the acting profession, sportspeople and more. Seen as a precursor to the carnival week, it's a lot of fun and will be a great way to usher in 2014.
