Dick Farina and Carolyn Hester,
Pamplona, Spain, July 1962

Dick Farina was a struggling writer, not yet known as a songwriter and performer, when his first wife, Carolyn Hester, was among the most popular women folksingers of the early 1960s. In 1962 they spent a good deal of time in Europe. In July, Dick took them on a writer's pilgrimage, following in Hemingway's footsteps, to the running of the bulls in Pamplona.
