Today we went on a day trip to Ronda the city of the bull fight where bull fighting on foot originated. Pedro Romero is the father of bull fighting on foot – well it was actually his grandfather who when seeing the matador (star bull fighter) fell off his horse. The bull was gaining so Pedro’s grandfather jumped in to the ring and distracted the bull with his hat. The hat changed to a cape and bull fighting on foot was born. The first real fight was however done by Pedro Romero. When we were in the bull ring we took lots of photos.
After the bull ring we went to a bridge with a sheer droop – here are some photos:
I had a awesome day in Ronda.
