A nod to the stereotype...

Before we left for Spain, our friend, Edward, cautioned us to not get trampled by the bulls. :)  Por supuesto, people often equate Spain with its tradition of bullfighting.  I'm not overly interested in sports, especially this one, but we did join two of the professors/guides from Mester, Carlos and Belen, in a tour of the local museum.  For more info on the museum:  http://www.museotaurinosalamanca.es/.  I should say that both Carlos and Belen are very knowledgeable and excellent guides.

The clothing of the matadors can be quite ornate,
with real gold used for the embroidery.
