I stood in the third row of the crowd, but only shot five small points, you feel it. The last time the emperor was enthroned, it is said that it was 40 or 50 years ago.

The bullfighting (toreo) is a national quintessence of Spain. It is popular all over the country and has a world-famous reputation. It has been a century or even a thousand years. Although it is controversial from the point of view of animal protection, it is still a modern tradition unique to Spain and has been welcomed by many people. March-November is the Spanish bullfighting season, which usually has one or two games on weekends. Our days in Madrid have been the last days of the bullfighting season and the climax of the entire bullfighting season, so it is very lucky to be able to watch a wonderful bullfight in Madrid. A bullfight played by three bullfighters, fighting a total of six bulls, two rounds per person. The three matadors each have a team of assistants, including three darts and two riding spears. In fact, for bullfighting, cattle and bullfighters are equally important, because its training level and fierceness are related to the bullfighter's good and bad, and the famous bullfighter in history is inevitably killed in the battlefield, and finally the fate of being killed by cattle. . The entire bullfighting process consists of four parts: teasing, spear piercing, darts and formal killing. After watching the Spanish bullfighting, it is really a tide. On the one hand, he is very admired for the bravery of the bullfighter, on the other hand he feels bloody and cruel to the bullfighting being stabbed to death. However, as a long-standing culture in Spain, it is very lucky to be able to see such a wonderful bullfight performance.
