It is the national holiday today (just like July 4th in the US). There is a bull fight in town to celebrate. It was very bloody, but very interesting. These bull fights are different from the ones in Spain. Instead of a bull fighter against a bull, the have 2 bulls going against each other. The good news is, these bulls do not die from the fight (which is not the case in Spain), but they do get pretty beaten up after the fight.

Apparently, these bulls only fight once or twice a year (just like a boxer). Also, the owners do not make a whole lot of money from it. The do it for the love of the sport. They are so passionate about it that the trainers would get into fight with each other.
