X-Pro1 - Bullfight in Spain | Patrick Cavan Brown | Sophisticated Spain | Scoop.it


A few months back I attended the last Bullfight of the season in Seville, Spain... a Mano-a-Mano match, 2 men, 6 bulls. Jose Maria Manzanares vs Alejandro Talavante, with Jose Maria as the victor. These are a handful of my favorites.

Bullfighting is very common in spain it is one of their favorite sports. though it can be very dangerous because you are mocking the bull and well as a wise person said you mess with the bull your gonna get the horns. these are trained perfessionals. so kids please dont try this at home. it is quite interesting and cool. i don't know how they do it. sometimes there are more than one bull in the ring.

When in La Rioja Spain, try the tapas, of course | Travel | Life | National Post

When in La Rioja Spain, try the tapas, of course | Travel | Life | National Post | Sophisticated Spain | Scoop.it

In Spain the dinner hour is late — meeting friends for tapas after work takes care of growly stomachs. Many cities have dedicated tapa zones, each establishment often with its particular specialty. In Logroño, the wonderful medieval city and capital of La Rioja, the L-shaped Calle del Laurel and Travesia del Laurel streets boast dozens of tapas bars within a small area

 

Vacations-Abroad.com's insight:

Tapa is the generic term for little bite-sized snacks taken most often with a glass of wine. The word tapa is derived from the Spanish verb tapar, “to cover,” and the originals were slices of bread or meat used to cover glasses of sherry between sips.
