Our day in Ronda was exceptional, amazing and blistering HOT!  I love the heat but this is relentless! Can't believe I keep crossing to the shady side of the street, but I must!
Ronda is a small city which dates back to prehistoric times. It is loaded with sights to see! we really just scratched the surface. After taking in the incredible views from the down town and Puente Nuevo, we decided to split up and meet for dinner and the Flamenco show later.
Emily and I headed to the Plaza de Toros which has an excellent Bullring, bull fighting museum,Harness and Livery collection, and a very interesting Fire-Arms Museum.  We were not able to take pictures of anything in these museums, but the evolution of the costumes for the Matadors, the enormous skull of an Aurochs from 400 years ago, and the dueling pistols dating from 16 century were really something to see!
