One afternoon’s wanderings through Seville brought me to the bullring.  There were no bullfights in session, but they offered tours of the ring and a small museum underneath.  The guide was excellent, switching back and forth between Spanish and English.  Bullfighting is pretty controversial in Spain, with traditionalists vs. animal rights advocates.  I was struck by the bright colors and by the energy of the place.  While you wouldn’t expect me to be the bullfighting type, I have to admit I was intrigued.  Perhaps too much Hemingway on the brain…
