Bull Fight, Benidorm
Walking by the beaches in Benidorm,you'll see some very nice sand sculptures.Normally they are always beautiful to see and the artists are expecting for some money of holidaymakers and visitors.So if you like them,leave them a little tip!!.
Bull Fight arenas can be found across Spain and regardless if I was for or against such a thing... I wanted to see the Spanish culture.
The bullfight was interesting. The bull really does not have a chance in my opinion. Of course, I was rooting for the bull haha
In the first part, the bullfighter uses the capote, a quite large rag of purple and yellow color. Now enter two picadores, on horse's back and armed with a sort of lance.
The second part is la suerte de banderillas. Three banderilleros have to stick a pair of banderillas into the attacking bull's back.
In the final "suerte suprema" the bullfighter uses the muleta, a small red rag. He has to show his faena, his masterity to dominate the bull, and to establish an artistical symbiosis between man and beast. The Corrida ends with the torero killing the bull by his sword
I guess no matter what sport or what country.. fans can get out of hand. This picture shows a sign they had at the bullfight warning the spectators not to throw their cushions. When you go in to the bullfight, you can procure cushions to sit on. Otherwise, you will be sitting on the hard cement. Sometimes fans show their displeasure with the quality of the bullfight by throwing their cushions into the bullfight ring.
I have just read the reviews for bull fighting. How sick i feel!!! How anybody can watch a bull being painfully and slowly killed!! I have no idea! Just because something is "culture" does it make it right??
Here is the traditional image of what a bull fight is all about :) I still have hope for the bull at this point....well, I am an optimist LOL
