After I located my ticket, Chelsea and I went to a park so I could teach her some Sevillanas. GOOD GOSH she learned fast! She's already got the feet movements down for the first 2 pasos..
We hurried home after losing track of time, showered and beautified ourselves for an evening with the bulls. I felt like we were getting ready for the Kentucky Derby or something because all the ladies were wearing *BIG* extravagant hats, silk suits, and high heels! Chelsea wore a black corset-type shirt with a bright orange broomskirt, but what really made her outfit was the matching necklace and earring set she had on. The orange was radiant and matched her skirt perfectly! (You know how girls get when they know their loooooooooove interest will be there, haha) I don't have an exciting outfit to report back about, but I did get to wear a necklace that my Aunt Suzi picked out for me at Christmas and I was excited to have jewelry matching my shirt after seeing what Chelsea was wearing. =)
We met up with Lindsay at a café close to the bullring, lots of ooooing and aaaaahing over everyone's outfits, and then met up with the group
One the coolest parts of the bullfight, was recognizing how much of Texas Tech's traditions come from Spain. I knew that the university had many Spanish ties and influences, but so many of our athletic cheers, songs, and chants have roots in Spanish bullfights. THAT'S AWESOME!
After the bullfight, Linds, Chels, Spence and I went to a bar to talk about how incredible it was. Lucky Spencer, because after a beer or two, we were ALL in a dancing mood, so we just kept passing him around for some 2-stepping and Sevillanas practice. It was a wonderful night with the bulls, and I can't imagine coming to Sevilla for a semester and missing it! Viva España!
