Sunday, 22 March, 2015:
The second of the two blogposts for today is about our evening at the bullfights.
This was my third bullfight in Spain, having previously been to a corrida in Madrid during the Feria de San Isidro in May of 2012 and, of course, last Tuesday at the Feria de Las Fallas in Valencia.
This corrida would be a bit different from those first two. Instead of three Matadors each fighting two bulls, this corrida for the benefit of Spain's Anti-Cancer Association, would feature one Rejoneador and six Matadors each fighting only one bull. A Rejoneador fights his bull solely on horseback.
Furthermore, instead of wearing the traditional Suit of Lights, all seven would be wearing traditional Andalusian outfits.
The corrida was scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m. but, like our Cobras game this morning, the start would be delayed.
