What Happens at a Bullfight as Told by a White Dude & 30 Photographs

Over the Fourth of July weekend I took a quick trip to Tijuana, Mexico in search of whatever I could find that would be outside of my comfort zone. Along with the incredible and unique food from various street vendors, tourist strips of shops and bars, and a wild beachside festival, I got to experience a traditional bullfight. I was really looking forward to the authentic taste of the Mexican culture, and honestly had no idea what to expect, but to say that I was completely blown away by the whole ordeal would be an understatement. I couldn’t figure out how else to explain a bullfight other than to give my extremely uneducated gringo take on things while showing a series of photos of what I saw. Ole!
