10-27: The Plaza de Toros in Ronda

Put a Plotnik into a bull ring and he is bound to pull out his cape. If it's a black cape, a sympathetic woman nearby is sure to offer him her red cape.

El Plotniko Muy Macho!!

Bullfighting is to Ronda what soccer is to Manchester. It is not considered a sport, but a national treasure. Bullfights are written up on the society page, not in the sports section.

Let Plottie tell you: when you're in there, standing on the sand staring up at seats for 5,000 people, all of which would be filled, waiting for a really big bull with huge, sharp horns to be released into the ring to try and gore your guts out, it doesn't seem like sport either, but suicide.

Plant some grass and you might have a nice baseball field. Turn some bulls loose during a game and you have the Next Big Sport.
