Many tourists go to see a bullfight when they visit Spain. Some know exactly what will happen. Others have no idea. Verne spoke to several tourists after they watched a bullfight for the first time during the San Isidro fiestas in Madrid on June 5 and 6.
“I thought it was only going to be a show without knives, without any violence. But it was definitely the opposite,” says Huda Alhajjar, a 26-year-old Dutch woman, after seeing a bullfight at the Las Ventas ring in Madrid. Shvravan Kumar Reddy, a 44-year-old from India, had a better idea of what to expect. “It’s marvelous the way they have killed the bull, a full-sized bull,” he says.
