Es Espinal is hot and ruled by hungry mosquitoes. But it has Red Top "aguardiente" [firewater] that even in fairs bottle costs $15,000 a bottle, U.S.$7.00. Ideal for exploring your social fears in parades surrounded by beauty queens and drunks dressed in anything that goes through their heads. Three days of debauchery. Very friendly people. People enjoy it everywhere.
Every year during the festival of San Pedro, the people here fashion a bullring out of bamboo. The building has to accommodate about 3,000 or 4,000 people, plus room for vendors. These corrals don't kill the bull, if they don't escape from it, they'll face the fear of touching the horns or tugging on their tails. Many of the bulls successfully manage. Here you can try a delicious manzanilla drink, which is one of the soft drinks, but be careful because it packs a powerful punch.
