|Subject: Re: Visit to Spain / Bullfights|
Hi Mark -
Many ions ago when I was young and stupid, my friends and I would go to the bullfights in Tijuana, Mexico on Sunday afternoons. At most it's only a 3 hour drive from Los Angeles.
There was no PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and virtually nothing about bull fights being a cruel sport, at least that we knew about. We had wonderful times, cheering with the best of them.
However, today having a lot more sense and sensitivity, I would not go to a bull fight. The matador has all the power and the poor bull is powerless. I just could not bear the process.
But perhaps going to one, you'd at least know you'd hadn't missed out on something which apparently has peaked your curiosity.
Good luck with your decision, Rose - Los Angeles
