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.
This cape is not light.

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