When I was here last time, I watched the bull fights every Sunday on television after Mass. I never had the opportunity to see one live. Today we made up for that. Call them what you will: artful, cruel, graceful, barbaric, they are an amazing experience of Mexico. The plaza de toros seats about 50,000 people. Because of dwindling popularity due to animal rights activists, the arena was quite empty today, but there were still plenty of Mexicans to drink, swear, and cheer the bull and torreros (Olé!). I have photos and video. I will upload videos when I get home.
