Archive for June, 2007
Two years ago, we went to León in June to see the Summer Solstice San Juan festivities. While there, we decided to see a bullfight. It was my first bullfight. The star of the show was a newcomer named David “El Fandi” Fandila. What I saw back in June 2005 was not a normal bullfight, but one of those magical, unforgettable moments in sports where the crowd cheers until they can cheer no more.
I’ve seen twobullfights since, one of them with El Fandi, and neither was very good (the latter saw two of the three matadors leave the bullring in an ambulance). So when Marga saw that El Fandi was fighting in León again this year for San Juan, we absolutely had to go see him.
On Saturday, we got up, packed our bags, and drove to Mondragón to celebrate Grandpa Ramón’s 87th birthday.
The other day, I was admiring how shiny and reflective the surface of my classical guitar is and, like a good amateur photographer, started thinking of subjects I could reflect it in.
