The Bull Fight

Purchasing bull tickets the night before.

We decided to treat Francis and his wife Natalie to the bull fight. It was Natalie and our first time

We got lucky coming this weekend. This event only happens one weekend a year.

One of the bull fighter's assistants rams tiny spears into the bull.

Near the end, the bullfighter get's especially brave. I guess he get's style points.

Going for the kill. The bull fighter must ram the sword in an exact spot on the bull's back to reach it's heart.

The dead bull is hauled off by the team. The bullfighter is honored if he had a good performance by cutting off one or two of the bulls ears, but only if he makes the kill on his first attempt.

Francis explains what is going on while Natalie looks on. We had second row seats in the sun section.
