A Quiet Day in Arganda del Rey


Monday, 17 October, 2016:

Sometimes, calm is a good thing. Today was one of those days.

After setting up our practice plans for the next two nights, Osos tonight and Stings tomorrow, I needed to go for a walk in the ciudad for some exercise.

The famed "El Gordo" mega-lottery is coming up soon. You can buy a ticket from any of your favorite Guadalajara Stings this coming weekend.

I took a walk on
Slaughterhouse Street

 GREAT Pope!

whose life was spared due to bravery

It happens, not often but it does happen in the world of bull fighting.

I've always found this country
just exotic enough to visit

The Osos now own three

Good get-off but we're too high with our pad level.

That was it for the day, good effort tonight by the Senior team but only 25 Osos were at the practice.

Tomorrow I will start a new adventure with a visit to the town of Cuenca to see the famous "Casas Coladas."
