WRITER, JOHN HEMINGWAY, IS AWARDED THE “GUIRY DEL AÑO” 2011

North-American writer, John Patrick Hemingway received the VIII Kukuxumusu Guiri del Año Award  at Key West (Florida). This award is bestowed each year on a foreigner in acknowledgement of his passion and fervor for Sanfermin fiestas and his connection with the popular fiestas in Iruñea/Pamplona. It so happens that this year, 2011, is the 50th anniversary of the death of Ernest Hemingway, the paternal grandfather of the award winner.

Mikel Urmeneta, founder-member and creative director of Kukuxumusu, went down to Key West (Florida-USA) to personally hand over the award at an event which took place in what was once the house of Ernest Hemingway himself, in Key West. Mister Testis, the Kukuxumusu blue bull, did not wish to miss the party and he also managed to make his way there for the award ceremony which was held in the very same office -now closed to the public- where Hemingway wrote his Taurino book - Death in the Afternoon (1932), inspired by the bullfights he had first seen in the Pamplona bullring during Sanfermin.
