Sevilla is a lovely city full of tapas and matadors. This morning we visited the plaza De Toro to learn a bit more. We learned that the matador has a team of three that work as a team. They have a total of 20 minutes to kill the bull. If the matador does a very good job, he gets an ear. If he does an excellent job, he gets two ears. And if he is superior , he gets 2 ears and a tail! Notice the bull in my picture has no ears. To ease the pain of this story, sometimes the presidente decides that the bull is brave and honorable and will give him pardon to live happily ever after in green pastures(that made me feel lots happier). Afterwards, we had another carriage ride around town. Enjoy a few pictures from our morning.
