The View from Hemingway’s Seat @ Plaza de Toros, Madrid, SPAIN

May 2, 2016Plaza de Toros
May 2nd of each year marks the Corrida Goyesca, a special bullfight held in Madrid‘s famous Plaza de Toros.  It commemorates the work of artist, Francisco Goya.  I was fortunate to get front row seats behind the matadors where Hemingway famously sat on many occasions.  Regardless of your sentiments toward bull fighting, I was in awe of the history, art, and spectacle. One cannot help but admire the athletic prowess of the men that wield the capes as their only defense in front of the raging toros.
